Description

The pueblos of Rivas, consisting of Chimirol, Canaan, and San Gerardo, at the foot of Cerro Chirripo, Costa Rica's highest mountain, have long been popular with expats. This comfortable home in Chimirol has about 200 meters of river frontage on the beautiful Rio Chirripo. The property under survey is 5,246 square meters (1.3 acres), but there is an additional area of around 3,000 square meters that is in the protected zone along the river banks. While the protected area is not available for construction, it is an area that will be exclusively enjoyed by the owner and provides easy direct access to the river, with a nice and flat private rock beach, great swimming holes and fishing. The main property is located high and far enough away from the river to eliminate any flood risk.

The house consists of 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. There is ample kitchen, living and dining areas. The grounds around the home are flat and totally usable for additional construction. There are numerous fruit trees on the property. The home is only 100 meters or so from the paved road and access to the property is excellent.

The property is located in the pueblo of Chimirol de Rivas and is just a short drive to the trail-head of Cerro Chirripo, which is the area's main tourist attraction for mountain trekkers. The area is one of the best in the country for hiking and due to its tourism appeal, there are numerous restaurants, cafes, and bars along the paved road.

The property is located at an altitude of around 1,200 meters, offering as good of a micro-climate as you'll find. Temperatures during the days are in the low to mid 70's (F.) and at night can dip into the low 60's. The property is only about 30 minutes to downtown San Isidro de El General.

San Isidro de El General is the second-largest city outside of the GAM of the central valley (the area that includes San Jose, Alajuela, Heredia, and Cartago). Here you can find anything you need, including great public and private medical care and even a mall with cinema!.

San Isidro has the largest farmer’s market in the region. Expats at the beach find it necessary to make frequent trips to San Isidro for provisions or services they cannot find at the beach. In short, living within minutes of San Isidro is simply more convenient.

If you want to eat, drink, shop, pay prices, and essentially live like a tico and immerse in authentic tico culture, then a gorgeous home in a mountain area like Chimirol de Rivas is the right choice for you.
