Montezuma is a small town known for it's natural beauty and abundant wildlife with magnificent waterfalls. It's nestled in the slopes of the towering hills that overlook the town. This town has a festive atmosphere and everyone seems to be in a happy state of mind you'll often hear vendors say "Happy Hour" even though it has nothing to do with drinks. Nothing much starts before 10 am so we suggest making this town an afternoon experience when things liven up. The nightlife here is also pretty hopping on the weekends.
Want to go to Jaco which is about 60km away? You can catch a water taxi that will take about 1hr trip.
Montezuma Waterfall: Located just south of the town you can walk to the deep swimming hole and cascading waterfalls. These falls will appear suddenly around the bed after you have hiked upriver for about 20 min. The lower falls are easily accessible the upper falls require some cliff face climbing. If you do a butterfly gardens tour this will provide easier access to the top of the falls
Playa Cocalito Waterfall: This is a 2hr walk along the beach north of Montezuma or for an easier ride on the back of a horse. On this hike, you are very likely to see some of the abundant wildlife and spectacular scenery.
Mariposario Butterfly Gardens: Worth a small hike to reach the butterfly gardens (3,000 colonies = $5usd) where you can tour the gardens, see the different stages of butterfly transformations. It's a small tour that will be about 20-30min then you can relax at the restaurant that has awesome food and a microbrewery that offers a wide variety of delicious beers.
Zipline / Canopy Tour: I highly suggest checking out the zip lining tours it's a fun experience that I personally feel is best in this beautifyl country. GO-PRvideodo worthy if you have one.
Favourite Place To Eat: The Hidden Art Garden (will you find this gem court yard?)
