Montezuma costa rica things to do

Montezuma costa rica surfing is one of the most popular activities on this zone but a heavy rain has endowed Montezuma, Costa Rica with an abundance of rivers, but paradoxically, there are very few lakes. Almost all the country's rivers rise in the mountains, where many routes are foaming white water, cross them perfect for rafting or kayaking. However, once these rivers flow into the lowlands, become languid waterways, many of which are lined with verdant walls of vegetation. These lowland rivers are excellent routes for trips in small boats, which allows passengers to observe some of the local flora and fauna.

The Montezuma Waterfalls are one of the most iconic waterfalls in Costa Rica

Just past this bridge is the entrance to the waterfall. It is necessary to trace the river in a small walk of about 15 minutes. There is a trail alongside the river that is easy to follow until a dramatic drop of water about 50 meters high. There is a beautiful and refreshing swimming pool surrounded by jungle. There is also a second set of falls (which some visitors consider to be even prettier) above the first fall.

The rainfall regime in the country makes an area receives rain water all year, while the other area only receives part of this period. This coupled with the climatic conditions of Montezuma zones determined that some rivers present an abundant flow throughout the year, and the other is more irregular. In our country we see about 34 watersheds of considerable size and that in turn are composed by smaller ones. The terrain knows no boundaries or political divisions; some of our basins are only partially in Costa Rican territory.

Two more waterfalls in Montezuma

Not just one waterfall in Montezuma, we have three waterfalls in a row. The two youngest are at the top, which many consider more enjoyable as they are more private, followed by the bottom spectacular waterfall cascading 80 feet. One of the things that makes it special Agua Vista are 800 meters of river frontage we have and a private road on our path to Rio Montezuma. From there it is a 10 minute walk along the river to the first two falls. There along the way several small falls and grounds very nice for bathing. Once you get to the waterfalls, you will find two deep pools and a swinging rope to a stimulatory input.
