Must see · Mountain · Nature / Park
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. Planning Canaan trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

  • Best National Park in Costa Rica! Has the highest peaks, great landscape, awesome views and very challenging hikes. The place is for advanced hikers though, getting to the refuge is a 15KM uphill walk. From there you can do other 6 trails. So you must be ready to do a great exercise. Come prepared, be sure to read articles on internet with tips and recommendations for this advanced hike.
