My mom and I came to Montezuma and stayed at Luz en el Cielo for 3 nights. Overall, we were very impressed and happy! We stayed in the private Vista Mar Cabina (with 2 beds) and it had a beautiful view with an AMAZING bathroom & shower. The hike can be a bit cumbersome after a long day in the...

Staying at this hostel as a solo traveller was a breathe of fresh air after staying at a hostel in Santa Teresa where I felt a bit isolated due to there being lots of other group travellers who did not speak my language. The staff here was so friendly and accommodating and were great to hang out and chat with....

The lion apparently recycles and is eco-friendly! This hostel is niched inside the jungle in Montezuma and cares a lot about its carbon footprint. Everything that is served is local and bio. They have many recycling and compost bins available. Everything is open air so there is sand on the floor but nothing disconcerting, its kept reasonably clean! The staff...

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel :) The hostel has a great location a bit outside of the city center (5-min walk) which was great because it was really calm at day as well as at night. The dorms were clean and comfortable. It was nice having a balcony with a view on the jungle and the wildlife....

This is a Beautiful and quiet hostel. Big kitchen for cooking. 3 minute walk down hill into town. That means walking up a steep hill every time you go back to the hostel. I didn't mind it, but if this would be a challenge for you, you probably shouldn't stay here. I stayed in the nicer, more expensive dorm and...

We stayed in one of the hostel's private cabanas. Nice and comfortable, a great view, and close to all of the wildlife of the jungle. Hands down the highlight and strength of this place is the friendly, helpful staff. Ensi and Hannah were there to assist us with whatever we needed and were always there to make our experience a...

I arrived in Montezuma after a quite adventurous tour along side the cost down from Samara. The small town is a great place to relax and just enjoy life. Luz en el cielo is a wonderful basis to do that. Suited slightly above the village, the little cottages and rooms make you feel like sleeping directly within the jungle. After...
