What is the trip all about? Every year members of the PEX community from around the globe gather in beautiful Costa Rica to enjoy the Sunshine, Ocean, delicious food and friendly people of Montezuma.
Montezuma, Costa Rica is a picturesque small village located at the bottom of the Nicoya Peninsula that is known for its off-beat bohemian atmosphere and the stunning beauty of its beaches, rivers and waterfalls. For decades, Montezuma has drawn a multi-ethnic blend of naturalists, artists and travelers, seeking an alternative to more touristy destinations.
Montezuma's center, with charming old wood houses, itinerant artists, and vivid street life has a Caribbean flair and feels like the open-air living room of the community where a continuous mellow party takes place.
The small beach village is hemmed in by high cliffs overgrown with jungle where small rivers tumble into scenic waterfalls and natural pools. Groups of Capuchin & Howler monkeys live in the forests that surround the town and will usually visit the hotel every morning.
The PEX Family will be renting out the Hotel Luz De Mono in its entirety and will also have a block of rooms at nearby Hotel el Tajalin. The hotel will become the focal point of the week, with several daytime pool parties, daily yoga classes and other activities. The Hotel is right downtown and restaurants and beaches are all within one block.
The week will highlight beach days, trips to the waterfall, daily yoga classes, daytime pool parties, nighttime events, a private mansion party and a large communal barbeque. Other easy adventures include horseback riding, snorkeling, fishing, paddle boarding, and many other adventures.
This has become one of the Favorite annual excursions for the PEX crew and we would love to have you join us.

How Do I get there? Montezuma is on the bottom of the Nicoya Peninsula on Costa Rica's Pacific Coast. There are a few ways to get there. I'll start with the cheapest and then move to more expensive.
You will want to fly into San Jose International Airport (SJO) Costa Rica, This is located in the Alajuela area west of San Jose city proper.
To get to Montezuma from San Jose you can take the bus, rent a car, take a shuttle or take another quick flight.
BY BUS: From the airport in San Jose, you can take a taxi (available in front of the airport, once you leave baggage claim) to the "Coca Cola" bus depot in San Jose. From there, you can take a bus to Puntarenas. The trip will take a couple hours depending on traffic and weather conditions, but its inexpensive. About $7 per person.
For bus to Montezuma, look here www.thebusschedule.com/cr/
BY SHUTTLE: Take A Shuttle, it is about $50 per person each way.
Shuttle info Here: http://www.montezumaexpeditions.com/schedules.htm
RENT A CAR: You can reserve a car through orbitz, kayak, or directly from many well known brands such as thrifty, hertz, etc. You will usually pay an additional insurance per day of $20-$40 in addition to the advertised rate. Most are unlimited miles. If you rent a car you will drive west from SJO to Puntarenas ferry. (2.5 Hours) The ferry crosses the Nicoya bay to Paquera. In Paquera you drive south to Montezuma (45-60mins) The entire journey takes about 5 hours. If you plan on doing any exploring off the main roads I highly suggest renting a small SUV with 4wd.
Check here for ferry information: www.nicoyapeninsula.com
FLYING TO MONTEZUMA: This is the fastest way but will cost you about $200 more total in travel expenses per person. You will need to book flights on Sansa Air. The flight takes about 1 hour, is beautiful and fun.
You will be flying from San Jose (SJO) to Tambor (TMU). The airstrip that services the smaller planes is right next to the main Airline terminal at the SJO Airport. To get there, walk out of the main terminal at SJO, walk left out to the main street and the entrance is about 50 yards on your left hand side.
Once you land in Tambor you can take a taxi to Montezuma for about $15 pp. Tell them you are going to hotel Luz de Mono, or El Tajalin depending on where you room is. (they are all close to one another)
