Cemetery Island in Cabuya

This island is accessible by foot from the mainland at low tide — about a 15-minute walk.  It is definitely worth a visit!  A local bus provides transportation from Montezuma to Cabuya at 8 and 10 a.m., by car it’s a lovely 7 kilometers drive.

Montezuma Waterfalls

South of Montezuma Village, you can walk the rainforest trail that has its entrance just opposite of Hotel Amor de Mar and leads you to the fantastic Montezuma Waterfalls (about 40 minutes).  The first waterfall you will reach cascades into a fantastic pool very nice for swimming.  From there you cannot see the upper falls, but if you climb the hillside (please ask for directions from locals), you will arrive at waterfall number 2 and 3 from which are grand vistas of the jungle.  Please do not jump from the top of the first waterfall into the pool below.  There have been tragic accidents!  If you are looking for an adrenaline rush, it is possible to jump from the top of the middle waterfall — ONLY with advice from an experienced local and at your own risk.  It is dangerous.

River Walk to Montezuma Waterfalls

The Montezuma Waterfalls may also be accessed from CASACOLORES by following the river down — about 3 hours of a fantastic walk devoid of civilization, only crystalline pools and jungle surrounding you. This is for the most adventurous people.  At times it is necessary to swim through various areas along the way, and you can ONLY do this in the dry season.

Swimming and Snorkeling at Playa Las Manchas

South of Montezuma Village about 2 kilometers on the way to Cabuya, you will find Playa Las Manchas, a very beautiful beach which is also good for snorkeling.

These rivers form freshwater pools before meeting up with the sea, clean water perfect for children or to rinse off the salt after a swim in the ocean.
