What are the best places to hike in Costa Rica?
All around San Jose are some really beautiful hiking spots in the mountainy area. Â Past San Antonio de Escazu, Santa Ana Salitral Area or Ciudad Colon. Beatiful views over the City and the climate is usually way more hiking friendly (not as hot..). Those are comparably smaller trips 2-3 hours.
If you look for something little more challenging the hike upÂ ChirripÃ³ is really amazing. Highest mountain of costa rica. People usually do it in 2-3 days with overnight stay at a camp up there. So you gotta go there a little more prepared but its definitely worth it.Â ChirripÃ³ is about 4 hours away from San Jose in San Gerardo de Rivas.
