Undoubtedly beautiful place. BUT! This is not a national park, it's a dictatorial maffia, where everything is geared towards you leaving as much money there as possible. It is an utterly confusing hurdle to find available dates and book anything, and then there is no possibility to change your date. Instead, you need to make a second booking and get refused a refund for the first one. Then you realise that the price of the mandatory (!) accommodation is not included in your multi-day ticket, let alone food or anything else. I didn't want to spend extra on the ridiculously overpriced food, instead I carried my own plus a camping gas stove. In the base camp it turned out that this is forbidden in the park, which is NOT mentioned in the terms and conditions when you make a booking. Instead, I (non-spanish-speaker) was expected to fish this information out of some 100+ page-long legal text written only in Spanish. I still didn't manage to do so. You cannot order warm food any more at this point. They refuse you to use your gas stove in the kitchen where there are multiple gas stoves, but they do offer you to boil you a cup of water for 1.5 USD. Thanks. Anyways they tell me to put my stove away, I do so, without using it. At the end of my hike, at the exit (!) of the park, 3 armed park rangers are waiting for me, know what I look like, know what I have with me, search my bag, and confiscate my girlfriend's brand new 60-dollar stove. They barely speak English, literally no logical reason would take their minds off of ripping me off and humiliating me, like the fact that I was taking the things out (!) of the park, or the fact that I cannot make fire without the gas bottle anyways. They also tell me that apparently I have two warnings for "bad behaviour" (which I had no idea about), and threaten me if I get a 3rd one I can be sent to court, jail, get deported, etc. What they classify as "bad behaviour" is unclear. This was over a month ago, they haven't answered to any email ever since. My absolute worst experience in CR, probably the worst in the entire world. My recommendation is, go to some other, equally beautiful place in CR, where you don't have to deal with this maffia.

we went the first day to base Crestone's, I imagen a small wood house, but not it is a big place with excellent service good and big amount of food, extremely cool douches so I didn't shower, there you have a sleeping bag we brought and extra of our own, now to walk you need fresh clothes by walking you warm up to fast, sun hat, warm clothes, sunblock, mosquito repellent, headlamp, and extra batteries.
we start to walk at 2 am, absolutely recommended, arrive at Crestones base 10 am
sleep for 2hous, then rest until the next day we started to walk at 1.30 am to see the sunrise. before the sun comes is extremely cold, I had two merino shirts, sweaters, winter jacket, thermal pants, two merino socks in each food and I was frizzing, once the sun comes out it is not that cold.
going up and down are both difficult. it is a long walk.
but that is what we went for, the challenge and the adventure so was great.

Here is your no nonsense list of what you need to know about hiking the Cerro Cherripo trail to Costa Rica's tallest peak.

Getting There
1. The entrance to the park is just beyond the town of San Gerardo De Rivas. Driving to San Gerardo De Rivas takes around 30 minutes from San Isidoro. If you are taking the bus I believe it takes anywhere up to 2 hours. The final 6km to San Gerardo is on gravel road with fairly steep inclines at parts. A 4x4 car is recommended if going to Hotel Uran as the roads near the hotel are really bad.
2. The closest hotel to the trail is Hotel Uran. It is literally a 5 minute walk from the trail head. Pretty much every other hotel is a 2km or 30 min+ hike uphill to the trail. This is worth knowing, as you will be hiking this additional distance on your way back which can be a pain.

Permits
1. You will need a permit to hike the trail - kind of. The permit that you purchase is verified by the rangers at the Base Crestones camp just beyond the 14km mark. With this, you are given a room and bed for the night.
2. To obtain a permit you can either purchase one many months ahead of time through reservations - OR - you can get one the day before you intend to hike from the National Park offices directly.
3. There are usually only around 10 or fewer passes available each day. People start lining up at the office gate around 3am, though some as early as 2 or 2:30am. It can be very cold, so bring blankets and warm clothes or an umbrella if raining.
4. Tickets are given out on a first come first serve basis.
5. You must pay in cash only. Payment must be made in a single currency; either US dollars or Colones. You cannot pay with a combination of cash, so make sure you have enough.
6. I am not sure if ticket prices fluctuate, however at the time we purchased ours (December 2013), the prices were around $30 US per person per night.
7. The rangers speak absolutely no English.
8. See the photo for reference to what the main office looks like. It’s easy to mistake.

What to bring
1. There is a printed list that we saw at Hotel Uran with some instructions and general guidelines. We laughed at some of the things on the list before the hike. After the hike we really wished we had followed some of the guidelines. For example, it suggests cutting your nails before the hike. I can tell you that after 5 hours of hiking downhill for 10+ miles, your feet will be in crazy pain if you have long toe nails.
2. Anything you are missing can be purchased from either Hotel Uran or the convenience store in San Gerardo De Rivas for a reasonable amount of money, including food, water and basic supplies.
3. See the images for the list of things to do and bring.

What I wish we knew before the hike
1. There are different kinds of gas stoves up at basecamp that I assume everyone can share. You should just have your own butane gas canister to use, but the stoves were readily available to use. We didn't know this and brought out own gas stove up with us. Hotel Uran rents a portable gas stove with gas for about $6 with a $20 deposit.
2. Silver ware, plates, mugs and pots and pans are all provided up at basecamp. No need to bring any of this with you. There is a kitchen area up at basecamp with fresh water that you can wash up with after.
3. I had heard about porters before the hike but never thought it was worth it. If I had to do this again, I would pay for a porter to carry my gear and food up and down for me. I believe you leave your stuff at the porter store in town and they will carry it up for you early morning. It will be waiting for you at the top. They will then bring it down the following morning as well. My legs and body would have been so much happier had I not had to carry all of that gear on a 10 mile death march to the top.
4. Those that did use the porter service were able to take much more food and clothing than we could. Most of them honestly ate like kings (rice, potatoes, steak, fish and more) while we had to make do with what we could carry (ramen noodles and hot chocolate).

The Hike
1. The hike is listed as 14km (8.9 miles). In reality it is closer to 17km (10.5 miles). I verified this with GPS in both directions. Each km section has a marker to give you an idea of where you are on the hike. Some of the markers are shorter than a km such as the 6km to 7km section, and some of much longer than a km. Just be aware that you are actually hiking almost 11 miles in each direction to base camp.
2. The entire hike is almost a constant incline. There are two sections that are flattish. These are the 6km to 7km stretch and another around 11.5km to 12km.
3. There is a shelter at the 7km marker. It is actually just past the 7km marker. You can get fresh spring water here, take a break, eat lunch and rest before continuing.
4. Km 8 through almost 11 are brutal. Honestly my legs were dying towards the last few miles. And when you finally think it’s almost over, you have the final 13km to 14.5km stretch which is a fairly steep uphill march the entire way to base camp.
5. People keep mentioning 5 to 7 hours to hike this trail. I am going to confidently say that you can do 5 to 7 hours if you are in extremely good shape OR you are not carrying any weight / pack with you. I was carrying a 55 liter backpack with around 25 to 30 lbs of food and gear and it took us almost 9 hours to get to basecamp.
6. Most people leave around 4:30am to 5:00am. It is probably going to be dark, so you will need a headlamp. We left at 6:00am and didn't really see anyone except for those coming back down. We arrived at basecamp around 4:30pm.

Camp Crestone
1. The bunks are not comfortable. You get a 2 inch hard plastic covered mattress on a bunk bed. You share the room with 3 other people.
2. Bathrooms tend to have wet floors, so bring shoes for them. Showers and water are freezing cold.
3. There is no light after sunset, so you will need head lamps or flashlights to get around inside.
4. There is a lot of snoring and the walls are paper thin. We found that many of the other people spoke loudly, sang songs and some didn't go to sleep until after 10pm. Bring ear plugs for this.
5. There was a cacophony of alarm clocks going off at 2:30am, so you will awake yourself around that time. However, do bring an alarms clock just in case.
6. There is a single outlet with power strip to charge your phone and other items in the corner of the main kitchen area near the door and under the tv. We didn’t see this until the day we left unfortunately.

Summit
1. The idea is to give yourself 3 hours to hike to the summit. It is marked as 5.1 km and it is pretty much exactly that distance.
2. The hike will almost entirely be in the dark. Make sure you have a headlamp that will last almost 4 hours for the journey.
3. The first 4.5 km is a mix of flattish to short inclines as you head out to the peak itself.
4. The final 0.5 km is an almost straight up climb up a steep trail to the summit. This last section is only about 100 ft. climb, but it is tough and took me about 45 minutes.
5. It can be cold or rainy early in the morning, and by cold I mean freezing. We were hiking in December and with the wind chill it was below freezing with ice on the ground.

Final thoughts
1. If you get stuck on the mountain for any reason, it is a $90 cost to have a porter come up with a donkey/horse to assist you down. There was someone that had to have this help on our way down. Of course this also means someone has to hike back to basecamp or hotel uran to call for help.
2.
That’s about it. Feel free to message me with any other questions.

It’s a beautiful hike that covers jungle, rainforest, drier high altitudes and amazing views at the summit. Take your time, enjoy and celebrate when you get back down.

Since many people have written about the beauty of this trail, and it is stunningly varied and beautiful, I thought that I would just provide some information that you might find useful in planning your hike.

Length of Trip-
Your first decision will probably be how many days you would like to take hiking the trail. Most people opt for two or three days, spending their nights at the beautiful Crestone Base Camp. This is sufficient time for most hikers to do the trail if they are only hiking Chirripo; however, if you stay at Crestone longer it is a wonderful basecamp to use for many of the other high peaks, lakes etc. in the area. Chirripo can also be hiked in one day but it is a long day (12-18 hrs) even for fit and experienced hikers. Choosing the length of trip that is right for you can make all the difference. If you choose to do the hike in two days you will climb 9 miles and 6200 ft (including ups and downs) to the Crestone Base Camp on the first day. On the second day you will climb the final 3 miles and 1700 ft to the summit. Then you will descend 12 miles to the trailhead. On the descent you will climb another 800+ vt. feet. If you take three days to do the hike the first day will be the same as the two day hike. On the second day you will hike the six miles out and back to the summit. On the third day you will descend the 9 miles from the Crestone Base Camp to the trailhead. Whichever way you do it the total is 24 miles and 8800 feet of elevation gain.

Approximate climbing times for experienced and fit hikers with a 15-20 lb pack are:
Trailhead to Crestone Base Camp 5 - 7.5 hrs
Base Camp to Summit 1.5 - 3 hrs
Summit to Base Camp 1.25 - 2.5 hrs
Basecamp to Trailhead 4 - 5.5 hrs
These estimates are just to give you a rough idea. Some can do it faster, others will need more time. Make adjustments for your level of fitness, experience, pack weight, weather conditions, etc.

Permits-
If you are going to spend at least one night at the base camp you need to acquire an overnight permit. You can call the park office ahead of time but if you are hiking in the dry season (Dec- April) all of the permits will probably be gone. If you do call ask for Harold. He speaks some English and is very helpful. If you can not reserve a permit ahead of time then you will have to show up at the park office the day before to try to get one of the ten permits they make available for the next day. At times there are already 10 people waiting in line before it opens at 8 am. Other days you can show up at 4 pm and still get a permit. It all depends on how many others wish to hike the next day. If you have to hike on a certain day you should probably arrive 2 hrs before the park office opens. If you are not going to spend a night on the trail you still need to go to the park office to get a day permit. These are unlimited in number so you can go to the office at any time and know that you can hike the next day.

Guides-
You do not need a guide to hike this trail unless you want them to carry some of your gear. The trail is extremely well marked every kilometer.

Early start-
Start early. The hottest most humid sections of the trail are at the lowest elevations. Early morning is the most comfortable part of the day to do these sections.

Water-
There is potable water at the Refugio Bonito at 7 1/2 km (4.7 miles), at km 13, and at Crestone Base Camp km 14 1/2. I carried only two (or at times three) 20 oz bottles and always had sufficient water. I do not think you need to carry as much water as others recommend but this is your decision.

Trail-
The first 5-6 km of the trail can be muddy and slippery (especially descending) depending on the season that you are hiking. The upper section of the trail is generally in good condition. The steepest sections are the 2 kms after the Refugio Bonito, the last 1 1/2 km to the Crestone Hut, and the last 1/2 km to the summit.

Crestone Base Camp-
The location has stunning views. It is a wonderful place to just hang out after a day of hiking. I did not stay there but I heard that the accommodations were good, although a number of people commented on a lot of snoring (bring some small ear plugs). There is a woman who works at the base camp (I forget her name) who cooks for some of the groups that come up. She was happy to cook up a small feast for me (in less than 10 minutes) for a small fee and a large tip. It's a nice option to have if you're tired of the food you carried up.

Weather-
Chirripo has mountain weather, ie, variable, unpredictable, and can change fast. Be prepared for heat, cold, sun, wind, rain, etc. You'll probably experience all on your trip so bring whatever you need just in case. I spent the first 4 1/2 hrs of my hike in cloudy, humid conditions, the next 5 in the sun and wind, and the last 5 in a steady rain.

I hope this info helps, and that you enjoy this beautiful trail and magical experience as much as I did. If you have any questions you can contact me at argustmr@yahoo.com.

BOOK A GUIDE, you have to!
Very sad, i couldn‘t visit the park. I reserved and payed park entrence fee, basecamp and lodging. After the organisation got all the money, i was informed to book a guide for 300$ to hike cherro Chirripo. While booking you get NO informations about that!!
Hope you all have a great hike with beautiful view 🤩👍🏼
….and the money for doing it.
I haven‘t. At least they don‘t give you the money back. They don‘t answer anymore and keep the money (over 200 $ for 2 persons).

I live in Colorado, have traveled and hiked throughout the world, and I can safely say that this hike was not worth the trip.

The cost to enter the park is expensive ($18 per day) and in order to complete admission you must pay an extra $7 dollars for a bank transfer via a Costa Rican bank. This is not including the $40 per night stay at the mountain top lodge, which I will address in a moment.

Upon arrival at the ranger station in San Gerardo, we were told that in order to gain a permit we would need to call the next morning, despite being in the office at that moment speaking to the same person who would be responsible for handling the phone. To say that this is a bizarre and inefficient practice would be an understatement.

Undeterred, we stayed at a great hostel across the street from the ranger station that had wifi and began calling the next morning, but alas, no one was answering.

Perturbed, I walked across the street to see what the heck was going on. Upon arrival, I see that not one person is actually sitting by the phones (that are on silent).

Fortunately, I was able to speak to someone willing to help us gain admission. He was surprised we had been denied admission the previous day. Perhaps everyone working for the park could at least pretend to be on the same page?

Next, you walk to the second station where you are required to pay for your stay atop the mountain. $40 per night is steep, but one would assume that some things would be included into that price. Nope.

After hiking a hard trail covered in mud and horse dung, you arrive at a basic lodge that offers no amenities. The mountain is cold, folks are tired, a cup of hot water would not be too much to ask for. Yet, in order to obtain this basic comfort one must pay, in fact, you must pay for every little thing. Meals are outrageously priced, and made regardless of the demand. Meaning, if there are three people in the lodge, as there were the day that I was there, a full lunch is made regardless of whether anyone is going to purchase (none of us did). The meals should be included in the price.

Every door and window is left open despite the fact that is is very cold and everyone who occupies the building is bundled up and clearly uncomfortable. Perhaps this is in an effort to get folks to rent blankets and sleeping bags?

Zero effort is made to help or keep folks comfortable. It is a bizarre and unfeasible the way that travelers are treated on this mountain. The views were nice if you have seldom traveled, but if you are looking for good hiking in Costa Rica, try Parque Nacional Rincon De La Vieja, or save your money and just hike the cloud bridge. This hike is a total rip off.

With their fairly recent move to privatize the registration process to enter the park and stay at the basecamp on the way to Cerro Chirripo, whoever is responsible has made it almost impossible to visit this natural wonder of Costa Rica. Not only is it nearly impossible to actually reserve a spot, it forces tourists to go through an agency and pay even more for the privilege of hiking a mountain. Not only do you have to call two different phone numbers repeatedly to try to get through -- they rarely answer the phone -- but you have to check in the day before at two different locations. It's like there was absolutely no thought put into any of this and now in an effort to make more money (as the fees have gone up dramatically), they offer less value than before and one cannot even get a reservation without spending weeks calling over and over and over. It is one of the most ridiculous things I've encountered in Costa Rica to date - and that is saying a lot. Shame on all of you for destroying this amazing place for Ticos and tourists alike.

As a climber and hiker you always look at ways to minimize the upcoming long day but you can't minimize over 8 thousand feet of gain. So go in with the understanding that you will be heading uphill, sometimes very steeply, for hours and hours on end. This is not for the novice or out of shape.

As usual, when we do these things we're surprised by the lack of preparedness that some folks have for challenges like this. You'll need a couple of liters of water each, at least, food, rain gear, good footwear and a first-aid kit. There is water at the half way point so you can re-fill. The trail is used daily by donkeys and horses to fairy supplies up and garbage down so it is a bit of a mess, slippery and full of poo. Plan on about 6 -7 hours to Base Crestones but others have taken longer and fast folks can do it around 5. A lot of information out there says start at 5 a.m., not sure you need to start that early, wait till it's light, but if you want lunch they stop serving at 2 - 2:30. Another reason to get an early start is to avoid afternoon rain, we started just before 7 (at trail head) and made lunch. Though we were staying at the Casa Mariposa which is right at the trail head so getting to the TH needs to be considered.

For Base Crestone, the bunks have two blankets plus pillow each and all we brought were sleeping liners - we were plenty warm sleeping in our clothes with the blankets. The meals are $12 each, cash only and there is wifi. Charging station was busy but we didn't bring a phone. Not much to do up there so a book may be useful though you'll go to bed around 7 or 8. Don't FORGET a headlamp!... lights go out at 8 and you'll need it if you want to start early the next day.

For summit morning you'll want gloves, hat, headlamp and a warm coat. You can use your rain coat as a wind shell but you'll want a warm layer. We brought thin puffies which are light and pack-able. You can leave stuff behind in your room locker and pick it up on the way down. They also tell you to leave at 3 a.m. but you don't want to be standing on the summit for half an hour waiting for sunrise so know your speed and sunrise times. We left at 3:20, took about 2:15 to get up to summit and still had to wait for sunrise. It was right around freezing, 32 degrees, with a 20 mile an our constant wind. The unprepared looked miserable and had probably been up there quite a while because they left at 3 a.m. Remember that this is still a 5 hour round trip and it can be down right cold. On the way down I'd recommend having breakfast (look at serving times because if you don't plan on having it you may not make it down in time) as it's a long day. With the trail conditions, going down is not all that much faster than going up like it can be on some hikes so have your water and snacks.

For tickets all I'll add is to have them long before you go. You are not showing up and just deciding to do this, not worth the hassle. Some hotels will arrange them, we went through a website, though I don't think they are running any more. Just get them before you go and bring photo copies of your payments and email exchanges. Don't rely on your phone to show emails, have paper copies. And again, this is not a shorts, tennis shoes and a wind breaker deal.

Have fun, it's a great experience!

I'm giving this a "Terrible" rating because the difficulty the hike to the Chirripo Base Camp was a killer even though I'm physically fit, active and got to base camp within 6.5 hours when the average is 8 - 10. If you're not an avid hiker who enjoys painful hikes, then I recommend you not do this. If you like challenging hikes, sleeping in hostel type settings or camping, etc., then this hike is for you.

We did the climb on December 26, 27 and 28 and I have to say our guide Sonia Padilla ([--]) made our trip! She was very enthusiastic and professional.

First, she helped us get the space at the last minute, you just need to trust her and show up, many people do not do this hike because it is very difficult to get in touch with the National Park service office and almost impossible to get the space. She has contacts at the park and can help you get space at the refuge even if you contact her just a few days before.

We decided to take it easy and not carry our own stuff, let’s face it the climb itself is tought and we wanted to enjoy it, not suffer it! Sonia suggested to reserve Hotel El Uran, which is only a few steps from the Park entrance, perfect to spend there the night before and start the climb at day break. We started at 4:00 a.m. and took us 6 hours to get to the refuge. We just carried a few snacks and drinks for the climb, the hotel helped us contract a porter to take our things (sleeping bad, blankets, etc) the day before the climb.

Sonia told us lots of great stories along the trip, I felt I had walked only for 2 hours, we got to the refuge and within a few minutes we had a complete hot lunch served. My friends and I were raving about the food, I mean, you are in a very basic place, only our group was been served, the rest of the people were doing their own cooking. Just trying to heat water in those cold conditions was very hard. Again, I wanted to take it easy and decided to have Sonia cook for us, it was not only delicious but extremely cheap! After the meals Sonia was always ready to take us to other areas of the park. We highly recommend Ventisqueros, Los Crestones and of course the hike to the Chirripo summit which was amazing. Sonia recommended to start the walk to the summit at 3:00 a.m. to get there in time to enjoy the sunrise, great idea!. I had never seen so many stars in the sky. We started to walk and I was really tired, I don’t know what I had done without Sonia, there were moments I felt I couldn’t do it, I got grumpy and even cried while I was walking, and she was there all the time motivating me to get to the top. She got my backpack and hold my hand for the last 100 yards. It was unbelievable and very emotional once I was there and could see the amazing vistas, wow!! It was so worthwhile!

The climb down was even tougher, be sure to have knee pads, a good walking stick, and whatever Sonia suggests.

Sonia charged $70 per day for the whole group ($12 each per day), very good deal and her services were worth every penny, you can contact her by e-mail spadilla00@gmail.com
. The tip we left was just symbolic for the job she made, she is our IRON GIRL! Thanks to Sonia we had a wonderful trip.

Recommend to get booked through www.chirriposa.net as I did. I had only good experinces, stayed in the most beautiful lodges, had the best and freshest food, took hikes in the jungle, swam in rivers, took showers under waterfalls, and hot baths in thermal water while having nonstop encounters of all the animals you dream to see. I will definitly return.
