Beautiful place! I really enjoyed waking up to the sound of the river and eating breakfast under the mountains! & the hot tun was great after climbing Chirripó!

Rio Chirrup Retreat is such a special place! The pictures don't do it justice (and the pictures are great). We wanted a place to relax after spending two weeks exploring Costa Rica, we stayed two nights, and I only wish we would have stayed longer. The entire property is immaculately cared for, with lots of trails near the river and places to explore. The rooms are clean, with great beds, tasteful and beautiful decor. The pool and hot tub are perfect, and they were able to set up an amazing thai massage in the short time I was there. Breakfast is included, and I highly recommend eating there for lunch and dinner. They have chefs who cook each meal in a open kitchen - a lot of love goes into each meal. There are options for beer / wine and smoothies for a really reasonable price. Such nice owners and guests, such a lovely place to stay. I can't wait to go back.

Hello my friends, my words are not enough to discribe our stay. The location was good for the soul, a beatiful place in the mountain with a stunning accommodation. We have enjoyed the time there, the delicious food and the relaxing massage were very good. Our lovely hosts are so helpful and friendly - we hope that we meet up again sometimes!! All that we keep deep in memory 3
