Cascadas de Montezuma

Este conjunto de cascadas está ubicado en las afueras del pequeño pueblo de Montezuma, en el extremo sur de la Península de Nicoya. Son, como dice mucha gente, algunos de los mejores del país.

In total, there are three waterfalls, all located very close to each other. The first waterfall is the largest one, measuring about 80 feet in height. This is a good place to rest, swim, or just relax and enjoy the beauty of the place. Continuing upwards, beyond this waterfall, you will reach the second one, about 50 feet high. From this waterfall, you can jump, but be careful. The third and last waterfall is directly above it and offers perhaps the best place to relax or swim. The waterfall itself is only 10 feet high and flows into a backwater that is perfect for splashing. On one side of the pool, there is a nice swing, and there are many other areas that are suitable for relaxing, picnicking, or sunbathing.

Cabe señalar que, si bien el río es propiedad pública, gran parte de la ladera que rodea las cascadas no lo es. Sea respetuoso y cortés durante su visita a las cascadas de Montezuma.

Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve

Nature enthusiasts visiting Costa Rica should not miss the opportunity to visit Cabo Blanco Natural Reserve. This area is the oldest reserve in Costa Rica and was initially designated as an absolute nature reserve, with no visitors allowed.

La Reserva Cabo Blanco está ubicada al sur de Montezuma. Ubicada en el extremo sur de la Península de Nicoya, la reserva protege más de 3,000 acres de tierra y más de 4,000 acres de océano adyacente.

Since the 1980s, a limited number of visitors are allowed to enter the park every day. However, there are policies to reduce the environmental impact. Currently, visitors are allowed daily with the exception of Mondays and Tuesdays, and camping is not allowed. Only 40 visitors are allowed in the park each day, and reservations are necessary to ensure that you can visit on your preferred date. Remember to bring water and supplies with you since the park has no internal trade of any kind.

The Cabo Blanco Reserve is an excellent place to see exuberant plants and exotic fauna, in addition, to walking along with one of the two main trails that lead to beautiful beaches. A path crosses the beaches of Balsita and Cabo Blanco, and the second path begins at the Balsita beach and goes to the limit of the reserve. Seabird watchers will be rewarded with sightings of frigates, gulls, and pelicans.

La Reserva Natural de Cabo Blanco es un lugar maravilloso muy cerca to observe wild birds, animals, and impressive flora while staying close to town and various activities such as surfing, snorkeling, and golf. Holidays in this area of Costa Rica offer a variety of recreational opportunities, places to relax, and incredible places to explore.

Playa Hermosa Tidepools

Uno de los mejores secretos de la zona, a menudo pasado por alto por los viajeros aquí, es el marea gigante entre Playa Hermosa y Playa Santa Teresa.

Solo está expuesto durante la marea baja y, en ese momento, encontrarás una enorme piscina natural. Por lo general, hay una ventana de aproximadamente 2 horas durante la marea baja que es perfecta para bucear.

Filled with all kinds of interesting creatures, including pufferfish, octopus, and other sea life, it’s a really great place for families with kids.
