We are 2 adults and three small kids traveling to CR in Feb. Have heard conflicting things about Montezuma and would love to hear your advice. We prefer chill, quiet places. Even if we had money (we do not) for 5 star- we would pick a place without pretension or cheese. I have heard that there is a bar/frat scene and am curious if montezuma has a Cancun vibe on a smaller scale. Would Santa Teresa be a better choice? We chose Montezuma bc it seems that the water us calmer.
We are considering ruling out Manuel Antonio bc it seemed too touristy- any thoughts?
Osa seems amazing but might be too tough with small kids.
I love reading all the advice on this board- thank you!
