Clara's review for another Bamba tour

“This was a great booking. Our villa was more than we imagined! We were able to cook our own food in the kitchen and the porch was perfect for reading and doing art. The hosts were generous and kind. We loved Montezuma and found it to be very chill. The people were genuine and sincere. Despite rain and a cancelled tour to Tortuga Island, we loved every minute of our trip. Recommend renting an ATV to explore all over the southern part of the Nicoya Peninsula. There are plenty hikes by the beach and to the water falls that are full of animals and beauty. The people of Montezuma made our trip though, everyone was willing to talk and share information. I would highly recommend booking with Book Mundi.”
