Welcome to Montezuma, Costa Rica, on the southern Nicoya Península. This remarkable beach town is undoubtedly the coolest place in Costa Rica. Since the early 1970's, people from all over the world have visited this area to discover the beauty of Central America, and many have ended up discovering themselves. Some have stayed permanently, creating this thriving community of artists, conservationists, musicians, chefs, and creative visionaries. While there are many types of people of all ages, colors, and backgrounds, they all share a common desire to live near a beautiful jungle beach with a sense of purpose and style.
From the moment you arrive in Montezuma, you'll know that you've discovered a very magical place, which is quite unlike other towns in Costa Rica. The area has been compared with Maui 50 years ago, or Santa Cruz, California, but with monkeys and warm water.
Despite its popularity, Montezuma still has beautiful beaches that you can often find almost deserted, many beautiful waterfall hikes, and secret surf spots where you can have a great wave to yourself. This website will serve as your guide to what's best here, and how to find it.
