There is no comparison between Jaco and Montezuma. Jaco is a developed dump with prostitutes while Montezuma is a remote, laid back artsy community.

I would pick Montezuma over Jaco any day!

Just got back from Costa Rica a few days ago and couldn't agree more- Jaco is nothing compared to Montezuma. If you want 'tranquil and laid back' Montezuma's not a bad place to start at all.

Would Montezuma be a good area to be with two small children? (two and five)

I didn't see any young children except for the locals when I was there. Montezuma dosent seem to offer much for youngsters to do. You might be better off with the kids somewhere else.
