Therefore, you will find yourself surrounded by exuberant vegetation during your one-day visit. Moreover, the place offers marvelous waterfalls for your delight where you can spend a great time with friends or relatives. Likewise, it has several spots with benches where you can take a sit and just connect with nature. On the other hand, different species of birds can be seen during the visit, as well as other species including White-faced monkeys. 

     This hiking tour is a loop that starts right at the entrance of the trail to Chirripo national park and deviates the course to Cloudbridge nature reserve at 4km.

Tour Facts

We start our hike at km 0 in the trail that leads to Chirripó at 5:00 a.m. We will follow this trail until we get to km 4 where we will have time to have a snack (consider bringing something to have on your own). From here, we start hiking down entering the private reserve. From this point, we walk through the rain forest. We will pass by a waterfall and see other waterfalls in the reserve from the lookout. Water is too cold here, so swimming is not a good idea. Along the trail, we will find benches by the trail and the Memorial Garden where we can spend some time too. Finally, we arrive in the reception area and return to the hotel.
