Chirripo National Park



The Chirripó National Park "Place of Enchanted Waters"

Location: 34 miles (56 km) directly southeast of San José. Quick Weather Facts: The weather ranges widely with elevation. Near the summit winds of nearly 100 mph (165 kph) have been recorded, and nighttime temperatures can drop below freezing. Heat stroke can also be a problem especially with the rapid rates of dehydration in the humidity, the exertion of climbing and the incredible intensity of the sun. Size: 123,000 acres (50,150 hectares, 192 square miles, 146 times the size of Central Park NYC, half the size of Rocky Mountain National Park Colorado) Elevation: from 3,000 feet (900 meters) to 12,530 feet (3,819 meters) 

Chirripó takes its name from the Talamanca Indian word meaning "Place of Enchanted Waters". It contains.
Tropical lowland wet forest (rain forest), tropical highland forest (cloud forest and subalpine rainy tundra. Cerro Chirripó Grand Attractions: The number one attraction in Chirripó National Park is climbing Cerro Chirripó, the highest peak in Costa Rica. The views are spectacular and on a clear day; you can see the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea simultaneously. It is long and steep -11 miles (18 km), nearly 10,000 feet (3,000 meters) of elevation gain, and a strenuous climb, but there are two huts where you can spend the night so you don't have to carry a tent. The first hut is located at Llano Bonito, about half way up.
