The park entrance and hiking trail
begins in San Gerardo de Rivas, one hour from Los
Aires.  The park can be accessed by bus from San
Isidro or by private vehicle or taxi. This is a full-day
trip and most hikers prefer to spend the night at the
base camp lodge and summit in the morning, hiking
down the next day. Los Aires can store luggage for
guests who spend the night off the property. Our staff
can assist with reservations for the hike / lodge or
they can be made directly by visiting the MINAE
Park Office in San Isidro. Overnight visitors should
bring heavy clothing suitable for sleeping in potentially
near freezing temperatures.
