Ready to live in the land of eternal spring? With perpetually mild temperatures and lush green vegetation, the sun shines often for this rustic cabin and riverside property at the foot of Cerro Chirripo, Costa Rica’s highest mountain.
The cabin has a rustic feel, but its few rough edges could be quickly whipped up into shape, making for comfortable quarters and beautiful outdoor, natural living in the most impressive mountain range of Costa Rica, the Talamancas.
The cabin is spacious with three bedrooms and a bathroom, living area, large side porch and kitchen. It sits on an area of 5,799 meters squared, or more than an acre and is bordered by the beautiful Rio Chirripo on one side and a well-maintained public road on the other. The property’s topography will delight you with private frontage in the gorgeous wild Rio Chirripo, beautiful volcanic rocky crags with views of Mount Uran, lush fruit trees, little ponds and groves of forest. There are several amazing building sites for cabinas or building the home of your dreams with views of the river and mountains.
The property is truly unique in that it feels completely private yet is only minutes walking from the heart of town of San Gerardo de Rivas, the last stop before the Chirripo trail head, where the most challenging and popular hike in Costa Rica begins. This makes San Gerardo a main tourist attraction in the area and there are many quaint lodges, hostels, restaurants and other locations of interest in this most mountainous part of Costa Rica. There is regular bus service to San Isidro, and then to the beaches or San Jose leaving just a 5 minute walk from the property, enhancing the property’s potential for a tourist use or retreat center.
Only about a half-hour away is the city of San Isidro de El General, Costa Rica\'s second largest outside of the San Jose metropolitan area. There you can find anything you need, including a mall with a cinema!
The property is only about 1.5 hours from some of Costa Rica’s most popular beaches, like Playas Dominical and Uvita.
