What are the pros and cons of living in Montezuma?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Montezuma responded:

"Our location is beautiful. Just outside of town. Wonderful neighbors. There's been a fair amount of building construction right where we are. It's been very annoying. It was very peaceful when we first rented here. That has changed considerably. I love that we are surrounded by mango trees. I love that we have three guanabana trees. I love that we have beautiful limes growing from a number of trees. I love that I can walk five minutes and have a wonderful view of the ocean. I can hear the waves crashing against the rocks. I love our landlord and her huge compassion. People seem to think we are rich because we live here and we are gringos. :( I love that I can sit on the front porch and watch a number of species of birds flying in. I love to watch the iguanas and watusas when they come to visit. Naturally, I love this location. There is a lack of public transportation during this pandemic. Who wants to get on a public bus? I don't," explained one expat living in Montezuma.
