Trying to get away from some of the crowds, we decided to go to the end of the line and stay in Manzanillo in Feb 2013. Due to positive reviews here, I looked up Cabinas Yamman and emailed Daniel. He requested that I use paypal for half of the total, which worked seemlessly, though there was some trust on my end to believe that I wasn't getting scammed, but once I got there and felt the totally laid-back beach vibe, I understood. The road is now paved all the way there (friends who had been to the area in 2011 reported that it was dirt), and chock-full of pedestrians and bikes. We got a little lost trying to find the Cabinas Yamman when we got to Manzanillo, but because there are three roads in town, it wasn't a big deal. We found the cabins immaculately clean (like, even clean for US standards) with fantastic bathrooms, wifi, two double beds and a mini fridge in the room. There is a full kitchen outside between the two cabinas, with full refrigerator, cookware and coffeemaker.
I wish we could have stayed here longer! What a find!
