An Extra Day Trip Destination

My friend and I have realized we have an extra day during our upcomming trip to Costa Rica. On our way back to San Jose to fly home we are going to try riding to Montezuma along the southern edge of the Nicoya Peninsula. The thing is, the road isn't paved. My map shows it as "secondary dirt road" read: dirt trail. I sometimes ride dirt roads while mountain biking but not much on a street motorcycle, should make for a challenging ride. I Google mapped it and got an up and around route to get there. Depending on the weather in July, we may have to go this route instead of along the coast as we are hoping to go. Rain will turn the road to mud and therefore impassable.

Montezuma appears to have an end-of-the-road feel to it. Nothing moves fast and no one really wants to leave it. Bohemian. After reading about it in my Lonely Planet book, I think I have to see this place. There are also some waterfalls to visit near town. We plan on visiting a few waterfalls before our vacation is over.
