Coming from the paradise of Maui it is hard to find a place that exceeds our expectations. We discovered a true paradise at Rio Chirripo. There is a purity and simplicity in the magic of this place that is bursting with color from the tropical gardens and the beauty that is so abundant here. The property is next to a... More

My friend and I stayed at Rio Chirripò retreat for 2 days before and after a climb of Cerro Chirripò. Oriana was wonderfully helpful throughout starting with her prompt emails and helpful organization of the climb itself, wiring the bank fee to the State of Costa Rica, and then giving us instructions every step of the way. Between her and... More

My boyfriend and I spent two magic days in this amazing place. We enjoyed the nature, the possibility to relax in front of the fire during the evening, the pools and the food that Oriana prepared for dinner. Thank you Frank and Oriana, we will remember your nest and we hope to come back!

Rio Chirripo Retreat is in a beautiful location in the mountain of Costa Rica. The scenery and the hiking near by the retreat are amazing. The rooms are very nice and are cleaned and given fresh towels every day. The food cooked for us was spectacular. If you do not like bugs or an rustic outdoor feel (like camping), I... More

This retreat is awesome for anyone who loves outdoors or just a very peaceful and serene environment! The service and food are absolutely excellent! The only reason it received a rating of 4 for for cleanliness is due to the more laid back atmosphere and the rooms are reflective of that however very clean!

From the moment we were greeted by our hosts Oriana and Frank, we felt among friends. We knew we were in Costa Rica. The Retreat, with its beautiful grounds and charming buildings, is both majestic and relaxed, set in the rugged mountains with the calming mantra of the Rio Chirripo through the forest below. To arrive is to listen. Our... More

The setting of rio chirripo is fascinating. The mountain views are breathtaking and the sound of the river is calming. Frank and Oriana were fabulous hosts. Oriana arranged an early morning yoga class for us- the yoga studio has amazing views. They also recommended great hikes to do in the area. We enjoyed their company and the food here was... More

From the moment you arrive, you feel a sense of belonging and that you never want to leave. We travelled as a very large group of five families and descended into Frank and Oriana hungry and tired from our travels. Immediately we were welcomed with the most beautiful buffet of healthy food and juices that one can only dream of.... More

I am in love with Costa Rica because of Rio Chirripo. It is difficult to fully capture the experience of Rio Chirripo with words because it is so beautiful, serene, and full of healing energy- there is just so much you can experience while visiting! I have visited twice, and both times have been wonderful. The lush mountainside with the... More
