Second Day: exploring the nature reserve El Rodeo on horseback (B, L, D)
After a delicious breakfast, we'll go to the nature reserve El Rodeo. In the conservation area, which includes one of the last contiguous forests in the Central Valley, you can be lucky and see the first inhabitants of the forest. Monkeys jumping in the trees, toucans flying and screeching their way, and the cozy lazy sloths hanging in the trees.
The region is best explored by horse. At a leisurely pace (the horses are suitable for children and beginners), we will go through the dense forests. You can enjoy the first trip through the Costa Rican rainforest in peace. Gourmet lunch in an idyllic atmosphere in the small lodge.
Overnight at Posada Nena.
3rd Day: View at one of the largest volcano craters in the world(F, -, A)
Today we will starts early in the morning to one of the main attractions in the Central Valley. The Poás Volcano is 2,704 meters high, and has one of the largest volcanic craters in the world. The walk to the volcano crater is not particularly difficult. When the visibility is good, you can take a look at the huge crater, which contains a bright blue lake.
It will be exciting when the Poás Volcano spews sulphurous mud, and steaming water into the air. From the main crater, we take a hike though a bizarre crippled forest, caused by the acidic air and the cold, up to the secondary craters with the Laguna Botos. Eyes open: here you may see some rare bird species. As well, this tour includes a great visit to an organic coffee plantation.
Right from Poás it continues up north, towards the border of Nicaragua. Near the small town of Boca Tapada, is the Laguna de Lagarto Lodge. The jungle begins at the porch railing of the Lodge: Buzzing hummingbirds, toucans call, a horde of screaming parrots flying by bromeliads and orchids, corkscrew vines, and trees line the walking path. Pure nature and a paradise for nature lovers.
