Casa Montezuma is located in a natural and peaceful area, with no noise or dust from the road or the town. The sounds you will hear will be howler monkeys, birds, and other jungle sounds. We hope that you will enjoy your stay at Casa Montezuma- it’s almost like staying at a Nature Park. If you prefer to be very close to the night life scene, you may wish to choose a house that is directly in town.

About the neighborhood
Conveniently located between Montezuma and Cabuya, near beautiful Playa Los Cedros. Walking time to Montezuma is about 30 minutes, along a winding, scenic coastal road with breathtaking views around every bend. The included bikes make access even easier- it is a lovely ride into town to pick up groceries or enjoy a meal at one of the many fine restaurants. Both towns (Cabuya and Montezuma) are accessible, and both towns offer their own charms and opportunities for enjoying this gorgeous area.
Getting around
The towns of Cabuya and Montezuma are both within walking distance, but because the weather is often hot most guests use the small shuttle bus that runs several times a day. Fare is about $1 USD. The house comes with a pre-paid local cell phone, and this phone is programmed with numbers for taxis. This is a great way to get around, and not very expensive. Casa Montezuma provides two mountain bikes for your use, with advance notice. Lastly, we are happy to help you arrange for a rental car while you are here. This can be a nice option for at least a few days of your stay, so that you may make a couple of day trips to the outlying attractions.
