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