must do in Montezuma!

Hello,

In 3 weeks, we'll be in Costa Rica for the 4th year in a row, we love the country!

This will be our first time in Montezuma and I was wondering what are the must things to do, see as well as places to eat.

We will stay at Hotel Amor del Mar for 4 nights in mid-february.

right across the street from amor de mar is the river hike up to the montezuma falls. i found that all the food in 'zuma was pretty good, but playa de las artistas is one of the highest ranked in the whole country, and it's about a three minute walk from your hotel, out the door and turn left.

if you walk along the beach, away from adm and the town, past ylang ylang, you can pick up a trail that mostly meanders through the jungle behind the beach and is usually quite busy with all types of wildlife, as good as any national park i've been into. if you follow this path for 2-3 hours it will eventually take you to el chorro waterfall, one of only two falls on the planet that empty directly into the ocean, though at that time of year it is likely to be not much more water flowing than your garden hose at home, but still beautiful. another favourite is to rent an atv and zoom through the mountains over to mal pais and st teresa for a day.

The area right by Hotel Amor del Mar is pretty rocky. But there is beach nearby.

This is a panorama I took from the rocks near Amor del Mar just last week, the green grassy area below the sun is the hotel area. As you can see from the link, it's pretty rocky.

There is some beachy area just across the river to the NE.

Also, I did just do the zip lines in Montezuma this trip and they're awesome!

We were there in Nov at Amor de Mar and loved it. Our fav dinners were at Kalibo, a short walk down the road. The boat trip to Isla Tortuga, which we got a good deal on by booking the same morning was definitely worth the boat ride. The water there was nice for swimming and meeting Philomena, the pig, was fun too. We also hiked at Cabo Blanco, which is a must do and rented bikes for a day. We were there six days and had no trouble filling in time. Wish I was there right now. Enjoy! Also, enjoy the tidal pool in front of the hotel. It's great.

I really like the food at Las Delicias, on the corner across from Chicos, it's tapas(isn) but large portions. La Narajo (next to Organico) is good, go on thursday when they have good music at Organico.

The place at the end of the street with the view of the ocean is good, but more expensive, so don't go at night since you're paying for the view, go during the day when you can see it.

And the pizza slices are good at Bruno's too. Sit upstairs for an excellent view. (Most people don't realize there is an upstairs)
