My daughter and I traveled to Montezuma 9/2-9/8/12. The first for me was the water entry to the speedboat taxi at Jaco. I was made comfortable and felt safe. The boat operator stopped for us to see a sea turtle, and later two whales. When we arrived our bags were carried up the beach to our awaiting taxi. Our first trip was to Curu with our Tour Guide, Juan Carlos. He made sure we were comfortable. He explained so many things to us and especially included us in the conversation. He was funny, and comforting during the 7.6 quake in the middle of the Curu reserve. Our drivers, Eddie, Kevin, and Melvin were excellent drivers in rain and rough roads. Javier at Zuma Tours even made sure we had food the night of the earthquake when there was no electricity. Some of the tours require a min. number of people otherwise you pay a higher rate.Juan Carlos took us to a wonderful "soda" called Soda Esmeralda outside Curu that had the most delicious "casados". I had the pork steak and my daughter the fish. I highly recommend this spot for a delicious and cheap meal. We took the ferry from Paquero to Puntarenas for our final night into San Jose. It was beautfiul and Melvin was waiting for us when we arrived. I thought the prices were very reasonable but should definitely be booked in advance.
