Carmona to Montezuma Costa Rica Today was Day 11 of our Costa Rica adventure and we explored the hills above Carmona and then traveled further down the Nicoya, Peninsula to Montezuma, Costa Rica. Here's a recap of our day.
After having relaxed and enjoyed Manuel Antonio for almost two days, on the 10th morning of our Costa Rica exploratory trip we were ready to continue our journey. Today we would be heading to Carmona on the Nicoya Peninsula. Chances are you’ve never heard of Carmona. It’s situated on the east side of the Nicoya Peninsula above the Gulf of Nicoya. Carmona District as it’s officially known is listed as having a population of about 2700, which I’m sure has grown significantly in the last few years.
After our walk, we headed out for a drive to explore the Osa Peninsula. We drove to Ciudad Cortes which was a surprisingly large town, but not all that interesting. After that, we drove to Sierpe. Sierpe is one of the jumping-off points for Corcovado tours. If we had had time we certainly would have taken a tour to Corcovado National Park the "Crown Jewel" of Costa Rica's national parks!
After spending an hour or two at the market we set off for the Osa Peninsula. We were taking the longer less traveled mountain route and would return along the coastal route later in the week. Per google, it would be approximately 2-hour drive.
