When you come to San Gerardo, your visit will be more rewarding if you are accompanied by an experienced guide.


Maribel – your Chirripo Guide


I’m Maribel, I studied tourism for many years and I’m a certified guide, and speak English as well as Spanish.

I’m interested in showing you my community and sharing with you some little known facts about our culture.

For example, a tour of San Gerardo includes hiking to the most beautiful waterfall in Cloudbridge Reserve. One important part of the project at Cloudbridge is the reforestation of the mountain side with indigenous species. On the trail I can tell you stories about San Gerardo’s past. My family was the first people to settle here and start farming. Come and discover the striking paths like the trails surrounded with bromeliads, relax in the warm Hot Springs (Aguas Termales), or use traditional methods to fish for trout.

For sports-lovers we have extreme hikes to the top of Mount Chirripó, the highest peak of Costa Rica, traveling a total of 15 km beginning in San Gerardo. Here you can enjoy the cloud forest, wilderness with glacial lakes, and the flora and fauna.

Welcome to San Gerardo! You will be happy so close to nature!.
