Montezuma, Puntarenas, Costa Rica.


Montezuma is an immediately endearing beach town that demands you abandon the car to stroll, swim and surf.

Montezuma, The Place.

Montezuma is a picturesque small village in Costa Rica, known for its bohemian atmosphere and the stunning natural beauty of its beaches and waterfalls.

Nestled into a landscape of true tropical paradise, Montezuma is perfect for any beach lover and eco-tourist. The village is surrounded by jungle covered hills with small rivers forming scenic waterfalls and pools. Groups of capuchin monkeys live in the forests and are easily seen.

For decades Montezuma has attracted a multi-cultural blend of individualists, artists and hippies seeking an alternative livestyle. The hippie roots of Montezuma come alife on Saturday morning during the local farmer’s market where you find organic food and handicrafts, while musicians gather for a jam session.

The Nicoya Peninsula – and Montezuma in particular – is a long-time favorite of surfers, adventurers, families and eco-tourists who come for the beaches, rivers and scenic waterfalls that dot the coast. Children can enjoy time on the beach and viewing the monkeys, iguanas, toucans, frogs and other critters that inhabit the land. Also nearby is a butterfly garden and Cabo Blanco Absolute Reserve, one of Costa Rica’s most beautiful parks.

Take a day trip to Isla Tortuga for swimming and snorkeling among hundreds of colorful species of fish, as well as whales, giant mantas, dolphins and sea turtles. Costa Rica is home to some 5% of all biodiversity on Earth, and you’ll see much of that natural splendor all around Villa Paraiso.


Visit Santa Teresa for some world-class surfing – it’s one of the most popular breaks in the country. At Mal Pais, old-growth forest spills down to the shore, where rocky outcroppings alternate dynamically with sandy stretches and beaches made up entirely of tiny shells.


Jungle-canopy tours, big-game fishing, horseback riding, ATVing – you’ll have your choice of activities around Villa Paraiso, the perfect place for your family vacation. Just make sure you bring your sunscreen!
