Going to bed was interesting..... first nearly stood on a small frog that had found its way in, then once inside the mosquito net (made sure it was firmly tucked into the bed, so nothing could crawl in), we both took turns in shining the torch to see what was there ... me (paranoid of bugs) and Alex (paranoid a mosquito was inside our net).
Still when we woke in the morning and sat on our veranda the view was worth it and then some parrots flew by and some white faced monkeys came and sat on the branches outside and played.
Overall impression of Montezuma....supposed to be a hippy town, but in reality its bought in to the idea and is quite commercialized and has more American students then hippies! But its a pretty enough spot and has a beautlful waterfall, which is a tricky hike thru water, mud and slippy hills....but once there you can swim in the rock pool at the bottom.
Also did a day trip to Tortuega Island for some snorkelling (not that clear in the water tho), BBQ lunch and relax on the beach.
Decided to move on to Manuel Antonio tomorrow...change of plans....was initially thinking too touristy....but hotel at Mal Pais assured us that its low season, so it will be worth the visit.
