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

I created a Trip Advisor account just to leave this review. I can't say enough good things about this magical place. Imagine waking up to birds singing and sitting in a sunbeam, watching the sun rise over lush mountains... Or sitting on a warm rock at the river's edge watching it flow... or relaxing in the hot tub and pool.... More

I arrived with little expectation and was completely swept away by the beauty of the surroundings and the warmth and kindness of the staff. It truly is a paradise. Waking up every morning to birds singing and the sun coming up over the mountains was just the start of a great day. Oriana and Frank are incredibly warm and welcoming... More

The peace of hearing a river in the background...while looking at lovely mountain vistas, after having an excellent meal prepared with care was worth writing about, but what touched me the most was hearing those working in the kitchen chatting and laughing with joy while they worked. I spent 3 days there and found Oriana and her family delightful, friendly,... More

Oriana and Frank were exceptional hosts. It was very interesting sipping a glass of good wine while chatting with them. We stayed in the cabin close to the Rio and couldn't have asked for a more beautiful location. The experience was magical. We loved the healthy and delicious meals - definitely sign up for dinner. We hiked cerro chirripo and... More

Retreat is a great word to describe Rio Chirripo. The setting is extremely beautiful and the layout of the grounds was well-thought out. The river is relaxing and can be heard throughout the property. Very nice pool and jacuzzi. New massage casita right on the river. Great Yoga studio with incredible views. We stayed in the Casita and loved it.... More
