Our point in going out to the Nicoyan Peninsula was to go to Montezuma. Seems like its a bit more remote and away from the mainland proper, thought it might be interesting... I dunno, we'll see when we get there...it's all good.
The road from Paquera goes through a few little towns, Curu, Pochote, and Tambor. They all seemed pretty similiar to any of the towns we have already passed through before. The road was tarred and decent all the way till about 5 miles outside of Montezuma where it turns to dirt. Really potholed, and rutted but kind of fun with the bike. It then descends sharply down to the ocean where the tiny town of Montezuma is.

So we walk out to the beach to get a feel for that

So we start looking for a place to stay....Carlas looking at the sign on the left....I'm looking on the right. Hmmmm... $265 on the left, $10 on the right.





Just about that point I hear this womans British accent...she's saying, I just started a new hotel, and am offering a deal. It has clean rooms, hot shower and only $40 US. And I'll take you on the secret path to the upper tier of the waterfall. Well Ok, it's settled.






So Carla hops into her car and I follow on the bike. It was kinda fun riding 1-up. We end up going back up the hill to this place.

Oh yeah, we got to do some laundry too.






So we head to the waterfall and park here: Future reference for anyone coming later...there is a road just above this parking place...walk out that road and it eventually turns into a trail that brings you down to the third tier of the waterfall.







A thought to leave you with tonite
