Can't get any closer to the beach!

My husband and I stayed at Ivan's home for three nights in March with our college-age son and his friend. We all agreed it was our favorite place of the many places we have stayed in Costa Rica over the years. We really enjoyed watching the sunrise over the ocean and sitting outside on the front patio for meals or drinks. The town is a few steps one direction and the beach a few steps straight in front, and yet is was quiet at the house.

Ivan and his family were fantastic and so hospitable. We did a tour through his company, Zuma Tours, to snorkel at Tortuga Island, and we really enjoyed the snorkeling and the beach. The white sand and aqua water makes Tortuga Island one of the prettiest beaches we have seen in Costa Rica. However, after a long day in the sun, our son got heat stroke. Ivan was very helpful when we called him and his family did everything they could to try to help us. He was fine the next day. We also used Zuma Tours to get to and from Montezuma, taking the water taxi from Playa Heredura near Jaco. It was just a one-hour trip, and we saw whales and dolphins. My husband is in the boating business and found their boats to be in really good condition. We did not find that we needed a car at all in Montezuma, and we prefer arriving by water taxi to driving via the ferry from Paquera.

We would definitely recommend Ivan's house.

My two sons, girlfriend and I stayed here last year. We loved it. Right on beach where the beach and swimming were perfect. Close to everything. Ivan was fabulous and helped with anything we needed. Highly recommended. Wish I was there right now.

This was my Second Vacation at IVAN's HOUSE and we stayed 14 days this trip. This house is in the perfect location if you are visiting Montezuma, it's located right on the beach and literally a stones throw away from the downtown area. Ivan and his staff always have a warm welcome for your arrival and pretty much take care of your every adventure need while visiting the Montezuma area including fishing, zip line tours , snorkeling, ATV rentals, horseback riding, and more!!!! Thank you Ivan, Francesca, Javier, and the rest of the Staff at Zuma Tours for another wonderful action!!!!

Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

We drove down from Arenal, nice drive with beautiful scenery. We checked in and Ivan came by to ensure everything was in good order, which it was. The kitchen had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. Good Internet connection. He gave us an overview of the area and things to do. We booked a boat excursion and horseback trip through Zuma tours, Ivan's company. His staff, like him, is top notch The seas were too rough so the boat excursion was cancelled. Ivan rescheduled those individuals to join us horseback riding. We galloped along miles of secluded beaches to a waterfall where we took a dip. My wife said that was her favorite activity of our vacation. Ivan stopped by and gave us some tuna he had caught. We cooked it up for supper, delicious. We took a short hike, right from the house, to this cool waterfall and went swimming. My son did some cliff diving, much to the dismay of his mother. The house location is the best in town, right on the beach, close to town. Right where you want to be. We'll be back, so much more to do and see.
