We came to Los mangos for a yoga retreat & stayed for a week.
Location, location, location - absolutely stunning view of the ocean & lush greenery
Shade from the mango trees
The yoga pavilion
The woman in charge of the retreats - dagmar - was simply excellent
Simple & stunning
Sylvester the friendliest kitty ever
The not so good:
It is extremely hot here. There is no air conditioning & in March, there is no cool breeze at night. You sweat 100% of the time. You need AC in Costa Rica. The people who claim that there is a breeze at night did not stay here in March. Extremely hot throughout the night.
You cannot flush paper products. Gets pretty gnarly between trash changes in the extreme heat.
Bugs. Everywhere. Bugs & geckos all over the place. Be prepared.
Monkey mango fights - this is both hilarious & somewhat annoying. You eventually learn to sleep thru the noise of mangos cracking on the roof
I very much enjoyed my stay here. Rustic beautiful, just what I needed. I recommend the yoga & qi massage highly. I think if I come back to montezuma I am going to need air conditioning though
