This private nature reserve staffed by volunteers and a senior biologist has an easy trail to a waterfall, plus almost 20 km (12 miles) of river and ridge trails bordering Chirripó National Park. It's a pleasant alternative for hikers who aren't up to the challenge of Chirripó. There's also an art gallery featuring nature paintings, and basic accommodations in a few simple cabins, including one en route to Chirripó. Volunteers often occupy the simple rental cabins,
so check the website for availability.
