If you're looking to stay in Montezuma on a budget, this is the place to be. Abbie (owner/manager) is welcoming, fun and very helpful, as are all of the other staff (several were American, so our limited Spanish was no problem). Great atmosphere, the place seems to be designed so that everyone congregates on the porch and socializes - we met a lot of great people this way. As long as you don't have any major mobility issues, the short walk up the hill from Montezuma is easy. We stayed in one of the new cabinas, and loved the open layout - the shower and balcony looks right out into the jungle and ocean, but with plenty of privacy. We had the windows and balcony doors open all of the time, the fan plus the bug net keep us cool/bug free. Didn't check out the dorm rooms but heard good things; highly recommend the cabinas, particularly for a couple. Breakfast and coffee were great, as was the 'family meal' we participated in - for $8 it was one of our best meals in CR! The $2 beers are a great deal too. We felt very safe - there are always staff on duty, and a safe at reception. Can't say enough good things about Luz en el Cielo - we'll be back!
