Montezuma is one of Costa Rica's most laid-back destinations. Full of natural beauty (there are dozens of large and small beaches within walking distance, and a set of nearby waterfalls that are ideal for cooling off), it's easy to take off and enjoy the outdoors for a day. There are limited luxury accommodations, but travelers will find a variety of comfortable options. For its small size, Montezuma has a high number of quality restaurants. More information about Montezuma Costa Rica.
