Safety-wise, you'll be fine in Montezuma. It's full of 20-something travelers doing the same thing... Both Zuma Tours and Cocozuma Traveler are reputable outfitters based in town.

The path to the waterfall is right by the Amor de Mar. They offer guided tours on it, but you're fine doing it yourselves -- just be careful and don't go climbing the falls and jumping as some people have unfortunately found out the hard way that it's not a good idea.

If you're up for a rigorous hike, I also recommend the Cabo Blanco Park down at the road. You can catch a shared taxi shuttle that leaves a few times day from the center of town for ~$2. Catch it in the morning, spend a few hours hiking through the hilly canopy and then down to a gorgeous secluded beach where pelicans rule before hiking back out to meet up with one of the returning shared taxis. The path is well-maintained, but sections are steep, there are blow-downs in areas that you have to go over or under, and it can be muddy. But it's really worth it.

The shared taxi mentioned above also continues to Mal Pais, also beautiful.

We stayed for 4 days in Montezuma last week and we didn't take any malaria pills, we did not even see mosquitoes altough we did carry a repelent.

Take cash since the nearest cash point is not near .

It is a great atmosphere there and plenty of friendly people inthe streets at night.

You will enjoy it for sure!!!

Do not miss a walk to Playa Grande
