Best Hotels in San Gerardo de Rivas, Costa Rica

Home / Costa Rica / Hotels / San Gerardo de Rivas

Nestled in a beautiful mountain valley, this tiny pueblo survives on a mix of agriculture and Chirripó tourism. Yet despite the steady trickle of hikers, San Gerardo de Rivas feels remarkably authentic and undiscovered. There’s a soccer field, a church, a school and a small market with a surprisingly decent selection of backpacking food. The surrounding area has a number of interesting activities—coffee tour, trout farm, cheese factory—and two kilometers east of town is the private Cloudbridge Nature Reserve, which protects 700 acres adjacent to Chirripó National Park.
