Planned to stay for a week..extended to two weeks! Great place to learn Spanish and surfing. Incredible nature and sunsets. Natural pool on the property with the waterfalls and beautiful beaches a short walk away. The landlords are super helpful and will help you set up any adventure that you are interested in.

The importance of the conservation work being done in Costa Rica was reinforced further in Montezuma, where Kerri and Bill originally started PUEDO, and still maintain operations.

Proyecto Montezuma has been an absolute blast so far! The scenery is amazing. The lodge is spacious and very welcoming. The walk to town is less than 10 minutes if I had to guess. Not bad at all!

5:40AM. The sun is rising over the gulf de Nicoya and is already beating down the eyes of the jungles natives. Only at Proyecto can you too fall victim to the suns overbearing "goodmorning."

I stayed at Proyecto lodge for a month. During that time, pretty much every person that came to stay for a week or two ended up staying at least two weeks longer, if they had the time off.

“The beach house is rustic, which is part of what makes it a fun place to live. The rooms on the second floor get better breezes but if you want your own bathroom, ask for a room on the ground floor. I stayed in the side room and grew to like it a lot.”
