                children love the river next door, the animals, the tideponds and the monkeys. Some are afraid of the bugs, which you find in all the rentals of the area. This is the tropics after all. None of the animals are dangerous and it feels great to overcome your fear....moreless

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          Located between Montezuma for dining, excursions, tourist information, night life, car, bike and fourwheel rental and Cabuya/Cabo Blanco for low key country life, bird watching, dining, fishing, diving, surfing etc. , all to be reached by public bus, our place is away from it all but still close. Endless beaches and a river running all year right next to the house invite to explore. It forms an ever changing fresh water lagoon right in front of the house where locals and visitors mingle. It's better than any artifical pool and changes it's appearance with every season.There are also waterfalls to explore. Famous surf at Cedros beach is right in front of the house (good for learning) and Mal Pais and Santa Teresa surf beaches are 20 minutes away by car. There are tide pool, pelicans and lots of fish to be caught right from the shore.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1992

                          About the owner: We moved to Los Cedros in 1992 onto our 100 hectar farm, working in farming, reforestation and construction. We also have a woodworkshop, a mango plantation, teak, pochote and cashew reforestation. We moved our artist workshop to San Jose lately and treat this as a gentleman farm.

                          Why the Owner Chose Montezuma:
                          This is life on the edge of the jungle with nature intact. The river is a source of wildlife, a monkey highway with little tourism. Just 70 meters from the beach but totally fenced in, with lovely local caretakers Marvin and Cynthia. Our next neighbors are 500 yards away. Still it is just 2 miles from Montezuma

                          The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                          secure, authentic, with lots of local flair, low key, private and personal. You can learn a lot about life in the tropics and nature is very close!
