Tourism & Travel / Rental apartments
Spanish term or phrase: Manillas
This comes from a webiste with small ads for rental apartments. I think the Spanish is Colombian.
The advert describes the flat and some of the conditions, and ends:

El apartamento está recién remodelado con todo el mobiliario nuevo.
Los apartamentos no suministran toallas, únicamente sábanas.
"Manillas" $5.000 por persona.

Could it be some form of deposit?

agree  Charles Davis: I doubt they're for ID purposes; there doesn't seem much point. I think they're probably decorative and typically Colombian souvenirs.
