How’s Cali, still nice and sunny? How are you new interns seeking to learn as much as possible from this cool company? Is Mark and Uno treating you well, cause they better! Lets stop the bull shit and get to the aim of this article..
Right now I m back in San José, came yesterday at night from the Nicoya Penisula and more precisely between Montezuma and Cabuya. 12 days ago I met some cool people around Santa Terressa (other side of the penisula) , and we decided to head towards Montezuma area. A little view of the roads quality, there is no roads! Just dirt road, getting floated and muddy as hell during the rainy season, so right now.. Santa Teressa to Montezuma is just a 35 miles trip but it takes you around 2 to 3 hours, you have to use the public buses they are the cheapest (2000 Colones so around 4 bucks) and they are more than old school, but work well. Just ones we had a flat tire, the driver didnt had a spare wheel so he just took one of his back one to change the front flat one, sounds maybe odd for you but it works perfectly!
Montezuma is a small town facing the ocean, full of great surfing spots, waterfalls, monkeys, iguanas, empty beaches, we end up for few nights in great hostel called Luna Llena. Its located a little higher on the hill, in the jungle, there are monkeys all around on the trees, really nice and relax athmosphere. The owners are a German lady Milly and a American guy Chris, they are more than helpfull, giving you rides when they can, surfing information from Chris (he surfs damn well!) and more..
We moved to a house 45 minutes walk south from Montezuma, 2 minutes from a magic right point break, establishing our little community! Our life could be summarized as such, surfing, fishing, chilling, napping, hiking, enjoying the day as much as we could with our neighbors the monkeys and chickens .
We were at the beginning 6 people, Uli and Chalotte from Germany, Nathalie from Switzerland, Cig and Adrian from the US and I. We got perfect right waves every days. 3 days after Uli headed back home, Charlotte continued to Nicaragua. The community was left at 4 members.
After more than a week of such great dinners (Cig is a great chef, specially regarding shrimps, fishes of all sort, coconut hunter..) the swell sadly changed of angle. Nathalie had to move back to Switzerland and me looking for some better oriented spots, so we headed to San José, living Cig and Adrian behind, the end of our community..
I just said goodbye to Nathalie, and I m leaving in an hour to Tamarindo by bus for the rest of my trip
Well thats how it goes, people come and leave and you never know in which part of the world and when you will see them again. Thats the great part of travelling, life is full of surprises!
Here are some pictures of Montezuma and around, enjoy!
PS: Word press is a little messy, I cant put the rest of the pics, so they will be on an other article
