Day 10-Montezuma!

A travel blog entry by marks-travels


We checked out of our house and headed directly to the Farmacia in Jaco. I had developed a sinus infection and knew from Andrew that I could buy antibiotics directly from the pharmacy without a doctor's prescription (yes! wish we could do that in the States). Hopefully the generic Z-pack I bought for $13 U.S. will knock it out.

We …

Day 82- Return to Montezuma

A travel blog entry by millhousers


When I graduated college, I briefly entertained the idea of returning to Madrid, where I had spent a semester abroad. I remember throwing the idea out to my mother, expecting all the normal protestations from a loving mother; "It's too far. It's too dangerous. It's too expensive." However, all she said is, "You'll be disappointed. It won't be the …

... not yet made any identifications.

I guess one of the funnier is the iguana that has twice since we have been here come walking down the stairs by our room stopping off to eat one of the cashew fruits that has fallen to the ground. Does not seem to be in the least bit interested in us but going about his business.

Never a moment without the sounds and sights of nature here.

Day 12-Relaxing

... enjoyed a relaxing morning reading on the porch hammock, window shopping and had lunch at a beachside cafe. Jill's caprese salad had an entire ball of mozzerella on it; would probably cost $8 by itself in the States. Of course we devoured it.

Folks say the tap water here in Montezuma is safe to drink but we've stuck with either filtered or bottled water. The plumbing is not so great so everyone asks that you not flush your toilet ...

Montezuma & Santa Teresa- surf towns in the South!

A travel blog entry by m_and_m_time


... the 'long way' we also saved serious amounts of money by not taking the fast ferry!

Montezuma is a small beachside village at the bottom of the Nicoya Peninsula. We spent two nights and one fabulous day there.

Montezuma is known for its waterfall that is within walking distance of the town. We made our way there along the creek and were lucky enough to have the whole bottom pool underneath the biggest fall to ...

    The staff at Luz de Mono are super friendly and accomodating. We stayed in a casita and awoke to the monkeys at 5:15am. This is our first visit and we'll definitely return.

    Pool turned my daughter's hair green

    After a long journey to Montezuma via the ferry, my small children were excited to take a swim in the pool. The pool was very warm and cloudy-had I not promised the kids, we would have skipped the swim. After a quick 20-minute swim, my daughter's blonde hair turned completely green. Fortunately, I had special shampoo that minimized the damage, but others should beware (you should also be aware that you will only get two small bars of soap and no shampoo). We were promised towels for the pool, but we never got them. The room was dingy. Both bedside lights were broken (one I unplugged because it scared me). The shower was particularly awful, very small, old, and claustrophobic. We had reserved one night with the anticipation of staying three nights, but we checked out immediately after breakfast (which was surprisingly good). Luz de Mono has an amazing location in terms of access to the beach and town, but recognize that that is all you are paying for . . .
