    You will be staying at hotel Los Mangos, located on the beautiful Nicoya Peninsula, in the town of Montezuma. This small, hip village remains one of the most popular destinations on the coast, with its beautiful beaches, great nightlife, and abundant natural beauty.

    The hotel offers accommodation in 10 rooms and 9 bungalows in a beautiful mango orchard looking out to the ocean. The owner has designed the bungalows to resemble the architecture found in Bali, connected by walking roads, the buildings have an octagonal structure, made of "Nazareno" wood with cathedral ceilings and wide roofed porches. You can relax by the pool, watch the monkeys, hike to the waterfalls or take a horseback ride along the beaches.

    Montezuma Yoga also offers private accommodation in their romantic Artist Loft and luxury Tree Loft depending on availability. Rates for accommodation in the Artist Loft with private bath are the same as the bungalow in Hotel Los Mangos, for accommodation in the Tree loft with private bath and kitchen please add 20$ extra per day. Both properties are located in a quiet residential area about 1 kilometer up the hill from the town and beaches. You can walk, catch rides or organize your own transport via taxi or 4x4 ATV.
