Fodor's Expert Review Cloudbridge Private Nature Reserve

San Gerardo de Rivas Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

This private nature reserve staffed by volunteers and a senior biologist has an easy trail to a waterfall, plus almost 12 km (8 miles) of river and ridge trails, including one trail that utilizes 4 km (2½ miles) of the Chirripó National Park trail. It's a pleasant alternative for hikers who aren't up to the challenge of Chirripó or haven't reserved a spot far in advance. There's also an art gallery featuring nature paintings by artist Linda Moskalyk, and accommodations in four fully equipped houses (starting at $60). Volunteers often occupy the simple rental cabins, so check the website for availability. There's no admission fee to hike in the reserve but donations are requested.
