  • Directions: In San Isidor go into the direction National Park Chirripo Pali shield on the left side shortly after a maxi (South) left in a street. Follow the main road are more and more signs that indicate the national park or the Cloudbridge reserve. Towards the end you cross two bridges and when the slope and the road of far from any reason, you can also safely turn off his car and walk on foot to the National Park. Location: The reserve is surrounded by the mountains, around the largest mountain in Costa Rica, the Chirripo. The Park is situated high and requires quite a bit of condition. Really the scrambling he does not charge however. Trail: The trail is very well developed. In many places, there are signs on the route. The climbs are located on the easy difficulty level. The route does not offer a really technical or endurance challenge. For this but the more natural. Stunning trees over waterfalls and small wooden bridge can be experienced here much. We were only 3 h here, had loose still spend many hours here can. Price: Admission to the Park is free. You can make a donation and take with a chain as a keepsake. A small hut with information about the history of the Park, the animals and the prevailing vegetation is located at the entrance of the Park. CONCLUSION: The Park is worth a visit in any case. He was hardly frequented during our visit and had much to let time work on the nature. Just the diversity of vegetation has impressed us particularly.
