Montezuma is located to the south of the Nicoya peninsula. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations due to its proximity to other emblematic places of Costa Rica, such as the white head, the first national park of Costa Rica, the Tortuga island and the Curu wildlife reserve.
The beaches of Montezuma are wide, the sand is soft and clean and the water can be rather temperamental depending on the time of the year, like many of the beaches of the Pacific of Costa Rica. From these beaches you can see the sunrise, usually from 5:30 a.m.
The most popular points of the most famous points of Montezuma are:
- The waterfalls: They are about 10 minutes walk from the city center (really, 10 flip flops and 15 barefoot), or a couple of minutes with a vehicle (there is a parking lot). Composed of three waterfalls, perfectly stacked one on top of the other and more than 15 meters high. The trip can be a bit intense and, sometimes, you may need to use a rope (conveniently published throughout the mountain, such as an Indiana Jones boot kit). If you are a strong swimmer and you are not afraid of heights, you can jump from a rock to the deepest bank of the second waterfall, not because of the weakness of the heart! But remember to do it with caution.
- Colored Stone: Located just in front of Playa Grande and just after the Hotel Ylang and Ylang. Piedra Colorada It begins as a cascade and ends like a small, gentle stream that flows into the ocean. Here you can enjoy the cool fresh water of the falls and at the same time the atmosphere of the ocean while it is being reviewed (or if the spirit moves you, participating) in the meditative act of works of art "to balance stone "At the mouth of the stream. , created over the years by tourists and local locals inspired.
- El Chorro and Playa Cocalito: From the center of Montezuma there is approximately a 2 hour and a half walk to the beach. For those who do not want to walk, there is another access point from the Tambor beach, but believe me when I say that the walk is worth it (you can also do a horseback ride). On this trip you can experience 4 picturesque beaches; Montezuma Beach, Piedra Colorada, Gran Playa and finally Cocalito. Here you will find the Cocalito River, which will love and intrigue you, warm in the background and cooled to the surface. From the river, you will see El Chorro & # 39; Waterfall It is a majestic place where fresh water flows and mixes with the ocean, like nature that is roasted in a well-done job. Once in El Chorro, if you still have it around you after the walk, go up the rocks up and you will find an incredible view of the whole coastline you have experienced on foot.
- The butterfly gardens: The gardens are exuberant, tropical and calm. A fantastic opportunity to discover the fascinating world of lepidoptera (read: butterfly), you should not leave Montezuma without seeing this.
