Cerro de la Muerte

Home » Destination Guides - Countries » Costa Rica » Cerro de la Muerte


The Talamanca mountain range, which you have to cross to get to San Isidro, includes an alpine zone. The change of climate and vegetation will become apparent as you drive along the Interamericana. As the road rises to the Cerro de la Muerte, the highest point before the descent to San Isidro, the lush forests that are common in other regions gradually give way to stunted tundra-like vegetation. The stunning panorama of green slopes plunging vertically into gorges far below can be admired from the miradores, or lookouts, along the way. The covered Mirador Vista del Valle is especially scenic.
