I arrived in Montezuma in the late evening, and was surprised to see how many other people were already there! After an hour ferry from Puntarenas, and a 1.5 hour really bad public bus ride from Paqueras on tiny little dirt roads, travelling at no more than 5 mph, I felt like I would be arriving somewhere very remote, but such was not the case. All sorts of gringos hang in Montezuma, a tiny little 2 street town on the southeastern coast of Costa Rica´s Nicoya Peninsula.

I had a nice stay, met lots of friendly people, and enjoyed myself. However, I don´t smoke pot or surf, which tended to be the mainstays of Montezuma´s activities.
