Most people come to Malpais in Costa Rica for the surf.
But to be honest, there’s more than just the uncrowded breaks and year-round swells to this area. (Though, I have to admit, it’s a draw.)
We ditched our (failed) attempts to find surf and drove about an hour to Montezuma, a remote fishing village to the south of where we were staying. It’s turned into a tourist destination, filled with restaurants, souvenir shops, eco-tours and yoga retreats. But I had heard about a butterfly farm that sounded pretty interesting.
And really, what else did we have to do today?
Here’s what our adventure in Montezuma looked like:
