Montezuma Gardens

We stayed at Montezuma Gardens but even if you don’t the Cocina Clandestina restaurant is excellent, the brewery beer is good, and the butterfly garden is fun.

The open-air restaurant overlooks the butterfly garden and the jungle. They serve the brewery beer even when the kitchen isn’t open. 

A howler monkey entertained us just a few feet from our balcony one afternoon.

We also had a close encounter with a white-throated magpie-jay. 

The butterfly garden has blue morphos and several other kinds of butterflies. They have illustrated guides to help identify them. It’s really hard to get a good picture of a butterfly!
