Web Reviews about the Taxi Boat:
Speed Boat Taxi Transfer to Jaco Beach (and other destinations on request):
The trip to Jaco (Herradura) by boat is one hour. Don’t take the long way. Take our boat directly from Montezuma Beach to Jaco. You may also have the chance to see dolphins, whales and other marine wildlife. Ask about other destinations!

Taxi Boat to and from Jaco
The private speed boat, taxi boat or water taxi to Montezuma or Jaco is one of the best way of transportation in this area of Costa Rica. Saving up to 7 hours of hot and uncomfortable trip by land, the taxi boat most accurate way to get to Montezuma or Jaco.

Taxi Boat Jaco Montezuma
We ended up staying two nights here and then leaving via private taxi boat across the awesome Nicoya Gulf, ($45USD ea), for a 1 hour transfer to the to town of Jaco (which would have taken us at least 8 hours of busing / ferries to get to otherwise.

Taxi Boat
So in a few minutes we're off to taxi a “Taxi Boat” up the coast to Montezuma, which is on the peninsula on the north pacific side of Costa Rica. I've wanted to go to this area for a while now! See the image on how we'll cut across the ocean to get there. The boat is an hour instead of the many (treacherous) hours driving up the coast and probably more scenic)
