Santa Teresa: Montezuma Waterfall Tour Costa Rica

Montezuma is only a 30-min drive from Mal Pais. The main waterfall is reached on a 30-min hike from the village center. You should wear good shoes as the trail leads over roots and rocks and you cross the river several times.

Another two cascades are located on top of the first waterfall. To get to the upper falls you drive to the Montezuma Canopy tour from where you can walk through the jungle on suspended bridges.


In the forest around Montezuma you can often watch families of white-faced capuchin monkeys.
