FAQ

How does this work?

We keep our groups small and our rates low by requiring a minimum number of guests for tours to operate. 

  • Send in your deposit to secure your spot

  • Once the minimum amount of guests have booked by the deposit due date, you will receive confirmation (90 Days  prior)

  • FULL payment is due no later than 80 Days prior to adventure date. 

What kind of accommodations can I expect?

Conquer a grueling quest by summiting Costa Rica's Tallest peak, Cerro Chirripo. Sitting at 12,533ft the 24.2-mile roundtrip trek with almost 7,700ft of elevation gain in 12.1miles is sure to challenge and reward you. 

This trek is through many different ecological systems that is unique to Costa Rica. 

Hike through mud, dry forest, farmland and through the tropical rainforest spotting waterfalls, farm animals, abundant wildlife, and eclectic climate changes for the truly adventurous. Sunrise summit will provide epic views of all of Costa Rica and will give you eternal bragging rights.

We will also be knee deep in Costa Rican culture and digging our toes in warm, tropical sand and splashing around in the epic waves of the more local, Southern region of Costa Rica; where the rainforest meets the beach.
