So we’re going to Costa Rica in February for a dear dear friend’s wedding. Yay! International travel! Very exciting. The wedding is in Manuel Antonio, where I’ve actually spent a little time before, so during the week before the wedding we’d like to rent a house somewhere else and just relax on the beach as a family.
Our current, very loose plans are to spend that week in Montezuma. Has anyone been there? It’s supposed to be a nice little hippie/surf/yoga town that meets all of our requirements. Ie. houses for rent, a beach, an organic cafe and plenty of Imperial beer. Bonus points for hikes to waterfalls close by. And perhaps most importantly, it’s only a few hours from San Jose. We’re trying to avoid long days in the car, especially because Costa Rican roads aren’t the most reliable. From there it’s only 3 or so more hours down to Manuel Antonio, which is definitely doable.
So what I’m asking is, do any of your have 1) other recommendations for towns that also meet our criteria and/or 2) if you’ve been to Montezuma do you have any recs if we do end up staying there? An excellent 2 bedroom house to rent would be an especially good tip. You guys always seem to come up with good advice.
