House Rental Recommendations

We are traveling as a family to Manzanillo this winter and we are trying to get a sense of the locations of rental houses. Are the houses at the far end of town near the creek ideal or others on the road into town better? We have kids in tow as well. Thanks in advance for any advise!

If you have a car, which I recommend if you want to stay in Manzanillo, just find a place you like and within your budget, El Arbol and Congo Bongo are nice.

North of town might be quieter at night- Moxie's sometimes has loud music well past midnight. If you are on the south side of the creek (won't be parking a car there), the jungle might buffer the noise. I stayed right in town, which was convenient for beach,bus,amenities,etc., but found it to be quite noisy with Moxie's, the church which has singing in the evening (which I enjoyed, but depending on your children's ages, might hamper their sleep) until 9pm, several times/week, dogs barking, and roosters that begin their mornings at 3.
