What should I know about Costa Rica?
Costa Rica is a world-renowned tropical country known for its biodiversity and natural splendor. It is sandwiched between the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, with Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the southeast. Its slender width makes it manageable to traverse and explore, with a high volume of nature reserves, national parks, and animal sanctuaries. Its capital and largest city of roughly two million people, San Jose, is in the center of the country, providing access to some of its most notable wilderness. Rainforests and beaches are the biggest draws to Costa Rica, and the Talamanca Mountains are prominent objectives for hikers and mountaineers.

Cerro chirripo is a great trek. Armin did a wonderful job organizing both the details of the trip and setting a very good pace. He also gave terrific service getting me to the next point in my trip. The accomodations both at the base at the pelican and the hut exceeded my expectations. The food at the pelican is amazing and features farm products from the property. If you have a chance at the pelican to sit with Wilson who has a great eye for spotting local birds Don't hesitate to book Armin for this trip or any other.
It was no space available in the Chirripo hut, and Armin gave us the option to try the Uran mountain, that is like 'next door' :) The service was fantastic - people are super nice, food is completely awesome. And, I was able to finish the climb just thanks to Armin - he led the group in very comfortable pace.
The Tour with Armin to the peaks of Uran and Chirripo was quite unique. A wonderful experience that I will never forget. The view from Uran and Chirripo was fantastic and made you forget all the efforts needed for the ascent. If you like the mountains and hiking, you will love it. Armin is a perfect tour guide. He has a lot of experience and many interesting stories. Armin was always there, when I needed help. The communication and organization was also really good. All in all, I can definitely recommend the tour with Armin.
This was by far the most strenuous trek I have ever attempted, but thanks to Armin’s leadership and encouragement I was able to rise to the challenge. Make no mistake, this one is hard - especially the 2nd day (12 hour hike from Paso de los Indios to Uran, Chirripo and ending at Crestones base camp). The day starts out in the dark and freezing cold and there are limited opportunities to replenish food and water. This is not a problem as long as you are prepared (read the itinerary closely and ask as many questions in advance as you need to understand what to expect). In spite of any technical difficulty and physical discomfort, I 100% recommend this hike. The scenery was breathtaking and the opportunity to hike in peace and solitude amongst the highest points of land was truly amazing. Thank you Armin and Explore-Share for making this happen.
