Additional Location Information

Barrio San Francisco de Rivas, 20 minutes northeast of San Isidro de El General (aka Perez Zeledon). San Francisco is a small rural community with one road that goes in and out so we have no through traffic. The road from San Isidro to the entrance of Barrio San Francisco is paved with about 400 meters of gravel road leading up to the Mango Loft property. This is a very small community with no businesses or attractions that would bring in people who do not live here. All the neighbors know one another and many are related. The outstanding feature of San Francisco is the beautiful and powerful Rio Chirripo. Across from our property is an access ramp where you can stand on the edge of the river, wade, collect river stones, sit on the big rocks and watch the whitewater crash around you. Our section of the river is a Class IV/V whitewater river.
Just outside San Francisco in Chimirol is a fine homemade Pizza restaurant and on the road to San Gerardo, you will find bars, sodas and restaurants. About a half hour's drive you can go to the Aguas Thermales in Herradura, and the town of San Gerardo where hikers begin their summit of Mt. Chirripo. San Gerardo has many tourists visiting the National Park or Cloudbridge Nature Preserve. There is an internationally known swiss style cheese factory nearby and a chocolatier shop a short way up the road.
Transportation to San Francisco de Rivas is by bus or by car. Either way, you'll follow signs for Chirripo National Park taking the Rivas Road through Rivas and past the small village of Guadalupe and to the green pulperia, El Paso. There is a right turn into Barrio San Francisco at Abastecedor El Paso that takes you across the narrow bridge and to the gate of our property. We have parking spaces inside a locked gate. To come by bus, get the bus marked "San Gerardo/Canaan" at the central market bus station and ask the driver to tell you when to get off at San Francisco.
