Magical and wild, Chirripo National Park contains the tallest mountain in Costa Rica, which rises to a height of 3,820 m (12,530 ft). Five ecosystems flourish here and offer visitors a look at stunning changes of vegetation--from wet tropical forest to subalpine wet forest. While climbing, you can appreciate sweeping vistas stretching as far as the eye can see. Wear clothing appropriate for cold weather, shoes suitable for rugged terrain, and keep in mind that you'll need good hiking equipment and advanced skills to safely scale the park's soaring peak.

  • I was completely miserable and the scenery wasn't great. But the people there were pretty dank.
  • I met through the NPTC (national tourist award program). Almost all my life I've been adventurous. I liked the change in temperature, altitude, the difference to the breathing, the diversity of the flora. The different views... From the top you feel more than free. If you like nature, you must be here; This is something fascinating. That day I understood xq told you Gaby q should occur with the Chirripo chest... Jajajajaja... By the way, visit Fraijanes, volcano Poas, Irazu volcano, Arenal Volcano Tiquicia thanks!
