Definitely recommend making the short hike to Montezuma falls. There’s a nice little pool and waterfall waiting for you at the end. We also saw and heard monkeys the entire hike, which was really cool.

Sadly there was a large amount of rainfall last night which meant that it was very difficult trekking! However, someone from a local place gave us this map, which is really helpful at knowing the different routes!

The waters were refreshing and it's definitely worth the hike. Not for those out of shape or in need of mobility aides. A beautiful trip nonetheless.

This is a must see! The hike is a little challenging in some parts. Be sure to wear hiking sandals as the rocks are slippery. A tour to get to the waterfall is definitely not needed- go to Amor de Mar hotel. You see a...More

We saw that this was the number one item in Montezuma so cheerfully decided to take the walk. It is not a long walk - 10-15 minutes. A few thoughts: - We went on a holiday weekend and got there around 11:00. The lower falls...More

Keep walking up to the third waterfall! The views are very nice and you can have a nice swim up there, if you take the free track, its quite tricky, but can do it!
