Horseback riding

This is a magical experience not to be missed.
There are options for horseback riding for the novice to the experienced in our region. We work with local businesses to provide you a stress-free experience, which can include private tours or groups, and yes, absolutely the once-in-a-lifetime experience of riding on an untamed stretch of wild coast.

Surf & SUP

Experience the fun and excitement of surfing with Montezuma’s top surf school.

Their proven surf programs are tailored to meet the needs of every surfer, from kids and novices to those ready to hit a two-over. We’re well located in the midst of a number of popular breaks, and we’ll be happy to point you to a wave suitable to your experience and desire. Also be sure to ask about our multi-day surf retreats.

Other activities on offer in Costa Rica

Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Reserve

The Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Reserve is a unique space.

Cabo Blanco literally means ‘white cape’, which describes the great, majestic rock that rises out of the sea off the final tip of land; a sight that rewards those who make the trek through the park to the beach that hides at the very end of the trail. A worthy destination for the outdoor seeker. This park is left almost entirely in its natural state. It is a critical ecosystem for a wide variety of birds, as well as mammals and all manner of jungle life. Aside from the trail, this is a world untouched by humanity.

Cabuya Island

Cabuya Island does a magic trick twice a day…. it becomes part of the mainland. How?

When the tide goes out, a natural land-bridge emerges, and you can walk right out. It’s a cemetery for locals, and a tranquil space for watching the sea. The Island is also a local favorite for snorkeling, and allows for easy access and calm waters, although at high tide you may want to rent a kayak (Calala has one) or even hire a guide, although a local can direct the adventurous to the best spots right from shore.

Montezuma Waterfall

The waterfalls on the edge of Montezuma are very popular, and it’s easy to see why.

Running right through the middle of the jungle, the Montezuma Falls consist of three sets of falls, with pools safe for swimming below each one. A guide can be found at the gathering spot (easy to find), or you can just wander up the trail to the very top…a 20 minute leisurely stroll.

Taking care of our guests and staff

As we welcome you back to our lodge, we are committed to providing you with a safe environment that aligns with expert protocols for working to defeat COVID-19.

Social distancing is pretty easy at the lodge, the beach nearby are always empty and the line-up at the surf breaks are never crowded. Our cabins are independent from each other and, in the restaurant and pool area, there is plenty of space between tables and deck chairs.
These are the new guidelines and practices we have recently implemented:

• Our team members are receiving ongoing briefings and enhanced operating protocols.

• We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas (including all surfaces, door handles, restaurant bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant.

• We will continue to adjust food and beverage service in accordance with current food safety recommendations. The buffet breakfast has been replaced with a “á la carte” option.

• We have increased the deployment of hand sanitizers.

• We have increased the separation between tables in the restaurant by creating new spaces and reducing the number of tables available.
