Learn to surf in Costa Rica

Montezuma offers the perfect place to learn to surf in Costa Rica. A 20 minute walk along secluded beaches and jungle pathways takes you to Playa Grande. This beach has no road access, which makes it a quiet and secluded place to learn how to surf. The surf lesson company we work with, Young Vision, has experienced instructors with ISA, first aid and lifeguard training.  Young Vision is a locally owned and operated company with local surfers leading the classes. Playa Grande is also a great place for intermediate surfers as well!  young-vision-surf-schoolCosta Rican Beaches Costa Rica beaches beaches of Costa Rica

Monkeys in Costa Rica

There are two different types of monkeys that you will see in the Montezuma area. There are white faced monkeys (or white throated capuchin), which are very small and active animals.They were given this name because of the white fur they have around their face and shoulders. white faced monkey in costa ricaIMG_0248

There are also Howler monkeys. The Howler monkey has been given this name because of the loud and deep howl that they make. The Howler monkey has all very dark fur and face. Keep a look out for both types of monkeys while here at Ylang Ylang! The white faced monkeys are often easier to spot, but you will surely hear the Howlers at some point during your stay!

Wildlife in Montezuma Costa Rica

Right here at Ylang Ylang, you can find some incredible wildlife. Wildlife in Montezuma Costa Rica is abundant and exciting. These photos below were taken just recently here on the Ylang Ylang property and were all seen within a few hours! Here at Ylang Ylang, we try our best to be as unobtrusive as possible and live in harmony with the wildlife. We ask that you please do not get too close to the animals and do not try to feed them. howler monkey costa rica white faced monkey in costa rica iguana in costa rica
