Montezuma: A tropical retreat with rainforest and beaches

September 22, 2019

The ultimate tropical escape can be found with these stunning activities across Montezuma, Costa Rica.

The tropical paradise of Costa Rica may feel like a very long trip away, but with direct flights from virtually every major city in the world, the adventure is a lot closer than you think. Once here, the resort options are extensive — which includes a vast array of options ranging from style, size and location.

Every year, our resort (Ylang Ylang Beach Resort) receives thousands of visitors who share their opinions on the top attractions across the region. Considering all this feedback, we’ve compiled the top recommendations based on experiences from real travelers.

Top Rainforests

Located on the central, western coast of Costa Rica, the Nicoya Peninsula is just removed enough from the main tourist traffic to offer an authentic travel experience. Wildlife, national parks and pristine beaches are some of the main attractions. The Nicoya Peninsula is also one of seven “Blue Zones” in the world that indicate longevity based on a healthy and outdoor lifestyle. Here are some of the top jungle adventures in our area.

  • Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve
  • Curú National Wildlife Refuge
  • Barra Honda National Park
  • Palo Verde National Park
  • Ostional Wildlife Refuge
  • Montezuma Waterfall
  • El Chorro Waterfall

  • Karen Mogensen Reserve

A true tropical oasis, Costa Rica has something to suit most everyone’s fancy. White-sand beaches offer the perfect playground for children, families and couples.
