Location

Las Nubes is located on the Pacific slope of the Talamanca range in Southeast Costa Rica, an hour outside the city of San Isidro El General. To the northeast of the property is Chirripó National Park which continues into La Amistad, an international biosphere reserve which Costa Rica shares with Panama. Las Nubes thus forms part of one of the largest rainforest ecosystems in Central America.

The Río Peñas Blancas is the main river flowing through Las Nubes with its crystal-clear water cascading over rapids and waterfalls. Several deep gorges dissect Las Nubes. Downstream lies Los Cusingos, the lowland wet forest homestead of the world-renowned ornithologist Dr. Alexander Skutch. The Tropical Science Center now protects Los Cusingos as a bird sanctuary.



Please note that this is the exact location of Las Nubes. The google map has the Chirripo National Park’s boundaries moved to the South.
