92 dgrees at 7 pm. 4 days in the kind of heat that brings you to your knees....if you are used to Nova Scotia.
12.01.2009 - 15.01.2009 33 °C
An exceptionally hot time in the time warp zone of Montezuma.
Strange as it may sound this throwback to the 60's has not changed much since I was here in the early 90's. Sure there are more restaurants and street vendors but the beaches and people using them seem to take for granted the casual atmosphere and lack of protocol which seems to always be in place at other Costa Rican beaches.
The western edge of town where the waterfalls can be found now has a number of upscale resorts and restaurants but there are still lots of inexpensive options for the backpacker. There are 2 camping facilities right at the edge of the beach where you can throw your sleeping bag for just $8 per person.
Wildlife is everywhere around the edges of town and a walk along the beach for about 4 miles will bring you in contact with white faced monkeys, coati and sloths.
It is about a 30 minute walk up creek to reach the falls. There is also a trail from above which is just as difficult.
