This is a tier-one hotel with amazing amenities, world class service and delicious food. It's one of the best places I've stayed in all of Latin America. Every detail was thought of from Covid protocols to fine touches with food, towels, etc. The hot baths are amazing and the rivers and stunning natural beauty of Chirripo are not to be missed.

I enjoyed every second of this peaceful, beautiful slice of heaven. The river is so gorgeous with giant boulders and cascading pure water. The “mot mot” room had an outdoor bathtub and right next to pool and river. The design of the room was innovative and well crafted. (Bathroom includes natural Boulder )I hiked through the jungle and saw agundi and so many different birds! The food is outstanding! And the staff so kind and generous- The hardest thing was leaving. Epic views of mountains!

We first went to the lodge for dinner. We loved the place! So, this year we went back for their super tasty breakfast and stayed in the river cabin. The gardens, the cabin, the lodge, the river are all incredible! Rio Chirripo Lodge is a special oasis!

Don't miss this awesome little property - we've stayed twice. Once with our kids and once just with the two of us and both times were awesome! The food is the best! They put SO much into the breakfast that it's my favorite part! The bed quality is awesome, especially in the river cabin! Lots of walking if you get a room down below the pool, but worth it for privacy and to hear the river at night!
