Mission Statement

Our festival hotels, Luz de Mono and El Sano Banano are located in Montezuma on the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. There are a number of options to get to this beautiful location and once you arrive you won't need a rental car. Everything is within easy walking distance—Montezuma only has three streets. Luz de Mono is at the edge of town at the start of the white sand beach and El Sano Banano is only a 10-minute walk down the beach.

Two possible ways to get there:

  1. Fly into San Jose, Costa Rica. Catch a connecting 35 minute flight on SANSA airlines to Tambor (near Montezuma). Take a 30 minute taxi ride from the airport to Montezuma. When you arrive, the El Sano Banano shuttle will transport your luggage down the beach to RAW WORLD.
  2. We arrange to have you picked up at the San Jose, Costa Rica airport and taken to a comfortable hotel for the night. The next day our bus picks you up and takes you to the ferry. After a scenic ferry ride you'll be met by bus that will take you to Montezuma. Once in Montezuma the El Sano Banano will shuttle your luggage down the beach to RAW WORLD.

Travel Tips

When you arrive at the El Sano Banano restaurant, you may wish to do what we do—order up a delicious fruit smoothie before heading down the beach.

Pack lightly. The weather is warm, the sun is bright, shorts are the most formal thing you will need. We recommend you bring clothing that take little space and dry quickly. You will feel a sense of freedom when you can carry your own bags! Here is what we suggest you bring for travel in the warm, beach climates of Costa Rica.
