Cottage in southern mountains on Rio Chirripo

Enjoy nature sounds, sights and smells in this small village on the Rio Chirripo in the mountains. These are photos of the Mango Loft and Casa Chirripo which both sit just across from the Chirripo River and a half hour from the entrance to the Mt. Chirripo National Park. You can stay with or without a car as we have gated, locked parking and a bus runs six times a day to and from San Isidro to San Gerardo, just a 4 minute walk from your casita.

Mango Loft is 1 BR and 1 BA; Casa Chirripo is 2 BR and 2 BA.

There is also a condo at Playas del Coco that can be exchanged in August, Sept, Oct, November

Our Neighbourhood

Photos show the area where the Mango Loft and other casitas are located on the Rio Chirripo in the mountains of Perez Zeledon (Southern zone). Some photos of the southern Pacific beaches around Uvita, which is a couple hours drive from the mountain casitas. Whale watching trips are easy to arrange between August and October. There is also surfing in Dominical, birdwatching and mountain hikes in the Chirripo Mountains, a half hour up the mountain from us. Parasailing over the valley is available as well.
