Montezuma Waterfall in Costa Rica

How to Plan the Perfect Visit

The Montezuma waterfalls consist of three cascading falls along a river. There are two ways to access the falls, plus several things you should know regarding how to swim under the falls.

The waterfalls are located in the bohemian beach town of Montezuma on the Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica. 

– One access point is free and is just outside of the town center. – The second access point is best for viewing the two smaller upper fall.

There Are Two Waterfall Access Points

– The cascade closest to downtown is the biggest at about 80 feet tall.  – The middle waterfall has a height of about 40 feet high.  – The upper waterfall is the lowest.

There Are Three Waterfalls

You can jump off of the top waterfall, but don't attempt to jump off the biggest waterfall like this guy!

Don't Jump Off The Falls

Sometimes locals might offer to guide you to the falls. You really don't need this. It is easy to find on your own.
