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!
