In Montezuma Beach, Costa Rica, the sun rises around 5.20am and sets around 5.30pm and it gets dark early.

To discover all the amazingly magical spots Montezuma has to offer, you’ll need to hike, explore and in some parts even climb. The temperature, on this corner of Costa Rica, varies between 30°C to 40°C, so comfortable and light outfits are a must.

The supermarkets in Montezuma, Costa Rica do not have plastic bags to hand out (yes, a huge environmental success!) and we encourage tourists to refill their water bottles instead of buying plastic bottles.

The book/ journal / camera will allow you to disconnect from your phone and everything it represents. After all, wasn’t it the reason you traveled all the way to Costa Rica? It’s sad to see couples and families all dining “together” but each one glued to the screen of their devices, missing the gorgeous natural beauty of Montezuma.
