Many maps do not show the boundaries of the provinces of Costa Rica accurately, including Google maps. This is especially evident in the Chirripó area--the official governmental boundaries and the 1:50K topographic maps both clearly show that Chirripó is a province triple-point and therefore the highest point in 3 of Costa Rica's 7 provinces.
This is a very short list, with only five peaks on it, all located in a popular country for tourists. The mountain climate is agreeable, and Costa Rica has a repuation for political stability and friendly people. The most difficult summit by far is Cerro Dúrika, a remote multi-day jungle adventure. Otherwise, this list would be a candidate for the easiest state/province high point list to complete for any country of normal size with real mountains.
