Located at the base of Costa Rica's tallest peak, Mount Chirripó, sits the picturesque, bohemian village, San Gerardo de Rivas.
For centuries, San Gerardo de Rivas was scarcely touched by outsiders. Consequently, it has remained unspoiled and left to bloom in its natural beauty and phenomena, waiting to be discovered and appreciated by genuine lovers of nature. In more recent years, eco-tourists and vacationers alike relish the sprawling mountain views, plentiful rivers, and the inviting atmosphere the small artisan village offers.

In the heart of the San Gerardo de Rivas rests the ideally eclectic woodfire pizzeria restaurant, bar, lodge, and iconic treasure to Costa Rican and foreign visitors. The property presents a scenic perch over the Chirripo River—a wonderland of lush vistas and photo opportunities, both in scenery and plentiful native wildlife.

For the first time, the property is available for purchase. This fully operational lodge extends an extraordinary opportunity for those who seek a Costa Rica mountain utopia—conveniently located just under a kilometer from the Chirripo trailhead, less than a half-hour drive to San Isidro de El General, the second-largest city of Costa Rica, and just over an hour drive to the pristine beaches of Costa Ballena.

The estate includes a fully operational kitchen and restaurant and lodging with seven rental bedrooms , each with their own bath. Property sits on a manageable 3000m2 property bordering the Rio Chirripo.
Upon entering you will feel as if you have entered a Swiss mountain lodge. Main floor of restaurant sits 40 and the hotel part of the lodge sleeps 20 people. Making your way through the restaurant you will be led down two subsequent floors where the sleeping quarters are located. Further down a back entrance will take you through a bamboo forest to the edge of the river.
As a bonus a two bedroom home located on the same property is part of the sale as well.

Your mountainside paradise opportunity awaits in San Gerardo de Rivas, one of the most beautiful and best-kept secrets of Costa Rica.
