El Rafal is a charming, rustic private cabina located 1.5 miles south of Montezuma and 1.5 miles north of Cabuya. The house faces the ocean which is only 20 meters away. A protected green zone separates the house from the ocean and a tiny sandy beach with rock formations ideal for fishing, yoga, and bond fires. Monkeys and iguanas frequent the property. A larger sandy beach and Rio Cedros is only a five minute walk from the property.

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at this home in Montezuma! We ended up arriving to Montezuma several hours earlier than expected because the roads where better than expected. Leanne had great communication before we arrived, giving us perfect instructions on how to find her h…
