Transportation options

We are happy to arrange these services for you at no additional cost.

Taxi boat with Zuma Tours 

In our opinion, this is the best way to reach Montezuma! Take a shuttle from the airport/hotel to Herradura beach. There will be a one-hour taxi boat ride that will take care of your luggage so that you can just sit back and enjoy the view. Arriving at the shores of Montezuma it is a short 10 min walk to the hotel. If you carry heavy bags, they will provide a car to bring your luggage. 
Approximate duration – 2 1/2 hours


This would be the fastest way to Montezuma. A quick 25-minute flight from the domestic airport in San Jose plus a short 25-minute taxi ride will get you to the hotel in no time!

You can fly either with Sansa Airlines or Green airways.
Approximate duration- I hour 


Renting a car in Costa Rica is always a good idea. Public transportation can be tough to manage. These two car rental agencies have offices in the area so we recommend working with them. From San José, you can drive down to Puntarenas and catch the Ferry to Paquera. This will take you approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes. The ferry ride is about 1 hour and 15 minutes and from Paquera to Montezuma, it is another 45-minute drive. It is a beautiful ride however and the ferry crossing is gorgeous! 
Approximate duration- 4 hours

Buy your tickets in advance for the ferry!

Approximate duration- 4 and 1/2 hours
