Winter in Costa Rica

Winter in Costa Rica, as some northerners may refer to it, is actually our summer. January, February and March and beautiful and sunny with no rain and few clouds. It is a great time to escape the cold winter of Canada, Northern Europe and the United States.

Winter Vacation to Costa Rica

As the winter weather is approaching up North, the hot days are returning to us here in Costa Rica. The rainy season has ended and we are now enjoying sunny, clear days for the next few months. Our summer season here in Montezuma means blue skies, sunny days, and hot temperatures, perfect for our beach front paradise. To cool off from the hot weather, we recommend to take a swim in the ocean, jump into our jungle pool, or hike up to the Montezuma waterfalls for a dip in the falls. It’s not too late to plan your winter vacation to Costa Rica and heat up under the Costa Rican sun!

Bohemian Beach Wedding

This gorgeous beach wedding was inspired by dream catchers and feathers. The bride and groom chose to create a bohemian theme for their destination wedding in Costa Rica. The ceremony was decorated with a driftwood arbor covered in white flowers, dream catchers and feathers. The bouquets were all white and green and the bridesmaids wore baby’s breath flower crowns. Photographer Kevin Michaels captured some beautiful shots as the sun went down. This Bohemian Beach Wedding was the first big destination wedding of the season! beach wedding bohemian wedding bohemian beach wedding destination wedding costa rica wedding

Turtle Rescue in Costa Rica

In an effort to help protect the sea turtle population, Montezuma has two protected turtle hatcheries.Turtle rescue in Costa Rica is incredibly important because of the theft of turtle eggs. These organizations track the turtles that come up on the beach to lay their eggs and once the turtle has finished laying the eggs and is back in the ocean, the volunteers collect the eggs and re-bury them in their protected hatchery. The mother turtles do not come back to retrieve their eggs, therefore posing no harm or suffering by taking the eggs and re-burying them. The volunteers then follow the dates until the eggs are ready to hatch. Once they hatch, they are collected and released on the beach to swim towards the ocean. The walk from the beach to the ocean is where the baby turtles gain their strength and ability to survive the ocean. Organizations like ASVO Montezuma and Refugio Romelia do great work in protecting and releasing turtles into the wild to hopefully restore and grow the sea turtle population.
