Climb the highest mountain of my country was a gold for my family and me. We where waiting the perfect time, and the time was when my youngest son turn 11, daughter 15, husband 44 and me 43. We were training but nothing prepare us...More
I am backing the review of sam m. and his account of what happened. The man in charge of hostel essentially sent a young man back into a possible life threatening situation with absoulutly no concern for human life. The man turned a new backpacker...More
This review is more about the manager of the lodge (whoever was in charge that day 9/17/18). I walked/hiked from Rivas to the base camp (~25 km) and arrived at the base camp around 4:30 pm alongside a German couple I had met earlier that...More
Chirripo national park is definitely a “must do” in Costa Rica. On the first day you do a 16 kilometer hike up to get to the base camp, where you can stay for 1-2 nights. From there you can climb up to the peak or...More
For my third time I climbed the Chirripo and the experience was amazing as I remember the two times before...The complete experience is done when climbing to see the dawn in Chirripo, but also climb cerro Ventisqueros, cerro Baru, los Crestones and the sunset at...More
One of the special parts of climbing Mt. Chirripó is the fact that you need a permit to do so. That means that it is not crowded and that you meet mostly local people. That in itself makes it a special experience. The climb to...More

Climbed to the top of Cerro Chirippo and it was one of the best experiences of my life. This is a difficult hike so make sure you're in shape to do it. The hike itself sends you through all kinds of different climates, ecosystems and...More
First I must confess that I have some prejudices. I have been hiking to Chirripó since 1996. The place is beautiful and I still long for the sense of camaraderie and simple life feeling of those trips to the wooden shack that used to be...More
Costa Rica has something for everyone. Ecotourism has been perfected and for those who are up to a challenge then look no further than Cerro Chirripo. This just happens to be the highest mountain in Costa Rica and the only thing stopping you from sights...More

Easy to find with a google search. I found this on Anywhere Costa Rica web site about Chrippo, but I'm not sure if the price is accurate as I thought all National Parks in Costa Rica were closer to $15-$16 per person, and if you read Trip Advisor reviews it appears to be even more, and difficult to get into at all, but here is what is said on Anywhere Costa Rica: Often enclosed in mist, it can be one of the coldest places in the country, as it boasts the coldest temperature, 15°F (-9°C),...More

Corcovado, Bahia Drake, or Chirripo from Dominical? (4 Replies)
My boyfriend and I will be in Dominical for 7 days in May. Is a day trip to Corcovado or Bahia Drake possible from Dominical? How about a day hike in Chirripo National Park? Thanks.

It's just to far to get to Corcovado or Drake Bay on a day trip. The roads are slow and you have to take a boat to Drake Bay. You could conceivably make it to Drake and back ion a day but you wouldn't be doing much besides traveling- it's a great trip though. Chirripo from Dominical is much easier for a day trip.
