Montezuma is a small bohemian beach town on the southern aspect of the Nicoya Peninsula. There are a variety of local artisan shops and a mix of restaurants. The wildlife is stunning, and we will be staying very near to the popular Montezuma waterfalls and Sun Trails Tours Ziplining attraction. There is often a lively night life in the town of Montezuma and depending on the night there could be fire dancers, live reggae, or a beach bonfire. We will be close enough to venture into town during down time.

See a video created by the amazing Livio Macchia HERE, it captures the essence of Montezuma.

We will be staying in the private Chez Mu Luxury Villa of the Aves Luxury Hotel and Resort. Aves Hotel and Resort is a luxurious, sprawling, consciously designed resort, recently built on the hills of Montezuma with views of the Pacific Ocean. The spacious facilities and grounds are meant to nurture your heart and mind.

The Chez Mu Luxury Villa is nestled on a breezy hilltop above Montezuma. The Villa offers tropical luxury with a new pool and modern furnishings. The home is in the middle of a lush 3.7 acre property, which allows for privacy and tranquility. White faced and howler monkeys, as well as parrots, hummingbirds and many other varieties of birds can be seen on the property. The hilltop setting provides panoramic views of the jungle and ocean, as well as a steady and refreshing breeze (and no mosquitoes!).
