The Montezuma Waterfall


Montezuma is a lovely little beach village on the Nicoya peninsula of Costa Rica, by the Pacific Ocean.

You find beautiful beaches, refreshing rivers, waterfalls, tide pools, and lots of jungle life all around you.  We are surrounded by several nature reserves so the area is well protected from large developments. 

Monkeys are seen a lot around here, as well as many birds, and small animals like agoutis and coatis.

Montezuma center offers locally owned small restaurants, a bar, a supermarket, live-music, an artisan's market, small shops, a weekly beach market, etc.

Other activities include yoga, canopy ziplining, ATV rentals, snorkelling, horseback riding, jungle hikes, and surfing. 

An extraordinary highlight are bioluminescence tours, where you can swim in the ocean at nightfall with spectacular blue neon glow surrounding you. Something truly unforgettable!
