Welcome to Montezuma, one of the most beautiful and memorable places in the world. Voted one of the ten most beautiful beaches in Central America by Forbes Magazine, Montezuma’s pristine coasts are sure to dazzle even the most jaded traveler. In addition, 30 minutes away are the beaches of Malpais, voted by the Forbes as one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the entire world.
Costa Rica is known throughout the world as an eco-friendly country, whose wildlife thrives, and whose jungles are actually expanding every year due to careful stewardship of the country’s natural resources. Ninety percent of electric power in Costa Rica is generated by renewable sources, such as hydro-electric, wind, and geo-thermal.
During your stay at Anamaya Resort, you will have the opportunity to experience many amazing adventures. You will see monkeys, parrots, and other animals.
Remote Waterfall Hike
In addition to the famous Montezuma Falls which are right next to our facility, we can visit another impressive waterfall, which is a twenty minute drive from Anamaya. This amazing waterfall is unmarked and rarely visited by tourists. It consists of a long series of pools that drop one into the other, and one large pool with a rope swing. Known as the Florida Waterfall, it’s also quite a bit easier to walk to, for people who aren’t able to hike all the way down in the canyon to Montezuma Falls.

Montezuma and Costa Rica are famous for their horse culture. The area’s cowboys, and cowgirls, still use horses to round up and move their cattle from pasture to pasture. We will put you on horseback to ride down the beach and visit the remote and undeveloped Playa Grande, Playa Cocolito, and El Chorro waterfall, that pours off a cliff and splashes into the sea. Another great horseback adventure is to visit the Florida Waterfall, described above. They’re two very different trips, and each spectacular in its own way. $40
Montezuma’s canopy tour zips right past Anamaya on a series of several steel cables. If you’re into adrenaline and action, this is an activity that you’ll love. Perfectly safe, you will find yourself zooming high above the treetops and river below at high speeds, experiencing life as only birds and arboreal creatures usually do. The tour also includes a stop at the waterfall itself, where you’ll be given time to swim. The Sun Tours office also has a small bakery with some tasty, home-made (and not exactly healthy) treats that our guests seem to enjoy. $40
Tortuga Island Adventure
Fishing, boating, scuba, and snorkeling are all staples of the Montezuma experience. We can charter a local boat to provide you with an assortment of fun activities in the Costa Rican waters. You may see whales, dolphins, or a sea turtle. Our chef will cook any fish you’re able to catch. Maybe we shouldn’t mention this, but there’s even a small shark or two sleeping in a cave at the snorkeling spot, and if you ask the guide, he’ll usually show you where it is. You can then cross of “swimming with live sharks” from your bucket list! $50
Playa Hermosa Beach Excursion
Playa Hermosa simply means “beautiful beach” in Spanish, and it’s the most gorgeous one in the area. This is a broad, flat, white sand beach, with perfect waves and a point break surf spot too. The beach is undeveloped and is picture-perfect with its leaning palms and beach almond trees. Despite its memorable beauty, Playa Hermosa is relatively uncrowded. Because it’s so flat, many of our guests love to take photos of themselves there at sunset, with their reflection in the water or wet sand, and the sunset behind them.
