Costa Rica - Southern Costa Rica (Chapter)
This is the Southern Costa Rica chapter from Lonely Planet’s Costa Rica guidebook.
Wild, vast and largely unexplored, southern Costa Rica is cut through the middle by the Cordillera de Talamanca and buttressed by lowlands. If you’re over Costa Rica’s tourism machine or burned out by beaches, welcome: this region is rugged, undeveloped and frosted by high-altitude chill.
- shiver atop Costa Rica’s tallest peak to watch the sunrise from Cerro Chirripó

- connect hiking to mountain waterfalls, milk a goat and learn about rainforest medicine at Reserva Biológica Dúrika
- restaurants & accommodation
