Other Things to Note
REFUGIO NACIONAL DE VIDA SILVESTRE ROMELIA
The Romelia RMVS, located in Montezuma on the Nicoya Peninsula, was created on November 24th, 1998 with the objective of contributing to the conservation of the Tempisque Conservation Area (ACT, from its acronym in Spanish).
The refuge stemmed from an initiative of Albert Ingalls and Gitza Gatti, who followed a dream of conservation for land that was their home and the birthright of their children. The land, now the Romelia Mixed Wildlife Refuge (RMVS-Romelia), contributes to the ACT as part of the peninsular biological corridor (Cabo Blanco Absolute Reserve, Curu Mixed Wildlife Reserve, Karen Morgensen Reserve, Nicholas Wessberg Reserve and the Romelia Mixed Wildlife Refuge). It is adjacent to the Nicholas Wessberg Absolute Reserve, one of the first and most valuable protected wild areas in the country.
The land of the RMSV exudes beauty. It is beachfront, bathed by rollinf Pacific Ocean waves, guarded by iconic sea stacks and inlands nurtured by peaceful rivers and tranquil waterfalls. It is one of the peninsula’s last bastions of pristine wilderness. The RMVS is visited by tens of thousands of eco tourists annually.
This Refuge is approximately 224 Ha 8349 m2 (SINAC, 2011). Within this territory there are a number of distinct ecosystems, primary forest, secondary forest, riparian forest and gallery forest. The avifauna includes more than 57 species of birds, 26 species of herpetofauna including, 13 reptiles and 7 amphibians. There are also 26 species of mammals, including 11 types of bats.

Precipitation presents deficit between July and August during the period known as “Veranillo de San Juan”, which lasts up to 70 days.

Notre séjour a la casa palmeras fut des plus agréable! La maison est tres bien située. Nous avons adoré la ville, les chutes, et les environs de montezuma. Il manquerait simplement quelques ustensils de cuisine comme un ouvre boite. La terrasse est magnifique! Nefertiti est tres attentive comme hôtesse et Ariel aussi. Nous recommendons fortement cette maison!
It was the 2nd time in this place, just the house next door, which is as perfect as the first. Every promise complied with. This house is less refurbished than the deluxe one and without A/C, but this is reflected in the price. Highly recommend!
Great experience here! The house was wonderful only a short walk from the town and the beautiful beaches. Very clean and well maintained. Someone met us at the bus stop when we arrived and showed us the way to the house and gave us the keys which was great!
Todo fue perfecto, la casa es como indicada en la descripción bien ubicada y muy bien equipada (solo faltaba un sacacorcho :)) . La dueña esta muy atenta y estaba muy disponible durante nuestra estancia para contestar a nuestras preguntas. Todo perfecto volveremos!
Tout fut parfait, la maison est fidèle à la description et aux photos et très bien équipée,(il manquait juste un tire bouchon :)) La propriétaire est attentive aux détails et à répondu rapidement à toutes nos questions durant notre séjour. Nous reviendrons !
El lugar es realmente como se anuncia. Una casa muy hermosa con una gran terraza con hamacas y mecedoras para disfrutar de la brisa del mar y el viento fresco.
La casa está muy bien equipada con todo lo necesario para una estancia larga.
La ubicación nos pareció excelente porque no está en medio del bullicio del centro sino en una zona más privada, pero al mismo tiempo muy cerca de todo.
No tuve el gusto de conocer a Ntt, pero a través de mensajes siempre estuvo atenta de todo. Su jardinero y ayudante Ariel también fue muy amable y disponible para cualquier consulta. Nos explicó todo al detalle y facilmente.
Muchas gracias por su atención y apoyo, todo salió excelente!
Great spot away from the center of town, but close enough to walk. Nice little beach across the street and great soda next door. The deck is great for yoga, and I was very pleased with the well-stocked kitchen that included stainless steel pots and pans, blender, and a rice cooker.
Unfortunately the water was unreliable and was completely out several times during our visit. Other than this inconvenience we had a great time.
We had a nice staying.
House is in a beautifull location and everything was fine.
