From the event website:

Montezuma is a place of timeless beauty on the pacific coast of Costa Rica, where for decades, many inspired and creative people have visited and left their mark. Over the years some have made it their home, while others have simply passed through to enjoy its raw beauty, but each has contributed to its growth as the countercultural and artistic mecca that it is today.

Montezuma Gathering, in its first incarnation, will be a time to plant seeds. We will introduce this magical place as a fertile ground for creative community exploration and artistic expression, inviting like-minded tribes from around the globe to share our tropical paradise and celebrate the creation of something greater and more beautiful than each of us could manage to create alone. More than we have a mission, we have a vision: to facilitate a safe playgound to explore with our extended family, a community that is bound by the new vision of the world, one of passionate dedication to celebrate our oneness and common goals.
