With a scenic position on a sheltered bay, Montezuma remains one of Costa Rica's quieter destinations, attracting mostly backpackers and other explorers averse to making detailed travel plans. The town's bohemian atmosphere and plenty of sunshine provide the top two reasons to take a trip to Montezuma, home to several bars, restaurants, beachwear shops, and yoga studios. Hippies continue to flock here throughout the year, seduced by the town's offbeat character and unspoiled beaches. When local students are on vacation, the town center becomes the area's lively party hub. You can always find some peace and quiet during your Montezuma holiday by exploring the nearby tropical forests, waterfalls, and uncrowded beaches located within two nature reserves. Use our Costa Rica road trip planner to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Montezuma.

Where to stay in Montezuma

Most visitors to Montezuma stay in the nearby coastal village of Montezuma Beach. There, you can choose from a wide selection of budget and mid-range hotels, as well as bed and breakfasts and eco-lodges. The best choice of accommodations clusters around the bus station, which is a stone's throw from the beach. For something more relaxing with memorable natural scenery, look south to the estuary of Rio Montezuma.
