Hotel, Restaurant and Bar ‘El Indio’ is located next to the Park Offices just west of San Gerardo and now under new management. The name ‘El Indio’ comes from our indigenous roots – the people who were the first people to live in the Chirripó area. They inspired us to harvest our land in a way that protects our environment and promotes our health.

Your hosts are Richard Cascante and Mariana Hernandez whose services of hospitality and cuisine are delivered with a new concept. Meals are prepared using fresh vegetables produced on our organic farm in San Jose de Rivas. Our service includes breakfast and free transport to the Chirripo trailhead at whatever time suits you.
Hours: 6 am – 11 pm
