Tons of lovely pensions in San Gerardo de Rivas

I really don't have a particular name, but there are several pensiones in San Gerardo de Rivas. I'll suggest you walk uphill and find the one that suits you. There are different tastes for different people so if you don't like the first one keep walking uphill until you like one.
Depends on the pension. Budget around $5-10 USD at least.

Base Crestones: Best Mountain Shelter in Costa Rica :)

Base Crestones is just what the name implies. It’s a shelter near the top that allows you to spend the night. They rent gas stoves and chilly (READ FREAZING) rooms. I was lucky enough to bring a good sleeping bag (no worries though, they rent sleeping bags as well). Oh, cokes were available as well :)...jejeje. I really used my sleeping bag up there... at night it got as low as freezing, perhaps more.
