How many nights in Montezuma and where to stay?

Hello!

We would like to visit Montezuma, how many days should we spend there and what is there to do beside beach time, waterfall and snorkelling to Isla Tortuga? And this snorkelling trip really worth it?

Also, if anyone has good solid places to sleep which are not hostels but budget hotels we'd love to hear ... many thanks in advance

Check out Amor del Mar for a simple place right on the ocean but no beach right there. You can also bisit Cabo Blanco & Curu Reserve for hiking & wildlife. We rented ATVs for a day & hiked Cabo Blanco in the morning & took the back road from Cabuya to Santa Teresa where we spent the afternoon. Thereis a waterfall a good bit north of Montezuma that makes for a great dayhike to see where it empties into the gulf. See www.nicoyapeninsula.com/montezuma for a map & more info. Ask locally about Isla Tortuga before booking as visibility in the Gulf of Nicoya is pretty limited by runoff during rainy season.

We stayed 3 nights last visit & would have been happier if we had a week but then we're pretty laid back travelers.

We have stayed as long as 12 days and were always busy finding deserted beaches, great waterfalls and excellent places to eat. I think there are many places to stay that meet your criteria. Having a vehicle will allow you to get around as it is pretty steep around the area. Have fun and enjoy one of my favorite places in Costa Rica.
