Rio Chirripo Lodge & Retreat

Chirripo Mountain

One of UNESCO world heritage site, is one of the most amazing wonders of nature in Costa Rica. Chirripo peak is the highest mountain in Costa Rica, 3820 m (about 12 000 ft), and second highest in Central America. Every step up will take you to a varietal of flora endemic to the Chirripo region, from tropical rain forest to alpine grassland. This hike is worth experiencing especially if you enjoy a good challenge.

The distance from the trailhead to the basecamp is 14.5 kilometers (approximately 9 miles). The average hiker can take from 6 to 8 hours to get to the basecamp. There are many beautiful hikes you can do inside the park but the most acclaimed one, especially if you are staying for only one night, is hiking to the top. On a clear day you can experience a spectacular view of both the pacific and the Atlantic Ocean. It is 5.5 kilometers (about 3 miles) from the basecamp to the top.  If you only have one night at the park the recommendation is to start hiking the morning of the second day at about 4 am to be able to summit and watch the sunrise.
