Costa Rica is a small country, but can be complicated to get around. There are a number of different ways to travel to Montezuma.
The fastest and most efficient option is to take a domestic flight to Tambor. This is a small local flight that takes about 25 minutes from San Jose airport. Landing in Tambor, you will be picked up by a taxi, which will bring you to Montezuma. It is about a 40 minute ride from Tambor to Montezuma. The flight offers some pretty incredible scenery! Check out Sansa or Nature Airlines for flight options.
The other option is ground transportation, which offers a view of the countryside and a nice ride across the Gulf of Nicoya. This is a longer trip, approximately 4-5 hours, but allows you to see some beautiful parts of Costa Rica.
There are also the options of a shared shuttle and a taxi boat. This shared shuttle picks you up in San Jose and takes you to Jaco, where you will board a high speed passenger boat and arrive on the beaches of Montezuma.
There are many ways to travel to Montezuma, each offering some beautiful views of Costa Rica and all is has to offer. Travel in Costa Rica is an exciting adventure!
While many believe that the rainy season in Costa Rica is the wrong time to visit, we’re here to tell you all the wonderful reasons why you should consider a rainy season vacation!
Costa Rica during the rainy season is green and lush! While you will see plenty of green during the dry season, the rainy season provides the trees and plants to thrive.
You also will see the sun! Some think that rainy season means rain all day and no sun. However, usually it will rain during the night and be sunny during the day. Always bring rain gear, an umbrella and a plastic bag for your electronics because you never know when an afternoon thunderstorm will roll in.
The rainy season also means less tourism and lower prices. You’ll likely find that hotels have a high season price and a low season price. The rainy season will give you more for your budget. Towns and cities will be less busy and more enjoyable. Overall, it will be an enjoyable and worthwhile experience. Don’t rule it out as a great time to travel and visit Costa Rica!

Costa Rica is unique in that jungle meets ocean. The lush and green Costa Rica jungle ends right where the beach meets ocean, offering a shaded oasis on the tropical beaches and needed respite from the hot Costa Rican sun. The jungle also offers views of wildlife, exotic birds and trees. There are so many beaches to explore in Costa Rica. Each one is different and offers different wildlife, trees, and scenery. Costa Rica beaches are unique and stunning, different than many you’ll see around the world.

A romantic honeymoon in Costa Rica is the perfect way to unwind after a busy wedding. I always recommend to spend a few days at the volcano and a few days at the beach. Starting at the volcano Arenal gives you a few days to trek and hike, admire the volcano and wildlife, visit the hot springs and take in the jungle.
After a few days of hiking and wildlife, you’ll be ready to relax at the beach and enjoy the beach and ocean activities offered in Montezuma. Spend the day exploring the beaches, surfing, horseback riding, snorkeling, or fishing. Spend a day relaxing at the pool with a cocktail, taking a yoga class, and getting a romantic couple’s massage.
