Day 10-Montezuma!

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

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 …

Hot springs, hot sun and hammocks

... we feel so fortunate to have been able to immerse ourselves, often literally, in the array of natural wonders it possesses. The extra memory we will take away with us, aside from Beyonce's photo of her new dog, is how genuinely helpful and welcoming the Costa Ricans we have encountered have been. As an example, when we made the challenging trek up to the waterfalls here early one morning and found the only other person in one of the plunge pools was a 60 year old local ...

... past the huge tree. Or 300 Meters from the crossroad of Cabuya, next to the bakery or down the road from the old guy who has 10 cows in his field.....and a mail guy will wait until he gets a couple letters from people in Cabuya and then set off to deliver them...probably on his ATV or unlicensed motorcycle. Kind of reminds me of the first episode of Christy...remember that one? Same thing...exactly!!!!! BUT.....there are ...

Montezuma - Hippie stopover

A travel blog entry by reframed.abroad

After taking another ferry from Puntarenas, I quickly made it to Montezuma, which is a beach town filled with hippies, surfers and very young travelling volunteers. There was really nothing much to do except laying on the beach, reading, staying in the hammock and eating. After 2 days I went back to San Jose for a night to get ready for my 9 hour flight to Montevideo through all of South America in order to make it to Argentinean Patagonia while it is still ...

    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 . . .
