3rd Day: the nebulous Poás Volcano: (B, L, D)

The active volcano “Poás”, located in the “Parque Nacional Volcán Poás”, is, with over 330,000 visitor per year, one of the main attractions of the country.

Vulkan Poas

The National Park is located approximately 1.5 hours north of the Posada. The last big eruption of the volcano was in 1953. The result was a 300 meter deep crater, which has the enormous diameter of 1.3 kilometers. There are also two secondary craters, and one of it with a blue lagoon. In 1989 and 1995 there were further small eruptions.

The attraction, the 2,704 meter high from the volcano Poás, allows, with a good weather, an amazing view into its bubbling inside. There is no guarantee, of course, but despite the fog, there is a chance to take a look at the sulfur-colored water in the huge crater with fumaroles.

The laborious ascent is eliminated, because a well-built footpath leads from the visitor center to the crater. It will be exciting when the Poas Volcano spews sulphurous mud and steaming water into the air.

From the main crater, there is a one-hour trail through the adjacent crippled woods. This bizarre forest is caused by the acidic air and coldness. You can reach the adjacent crater with the Laguna Botos, and with a little luck, you'll have a good look inside. Along this path, you'll have to keep your eyes wide open, because at this altitude, very rare birds may be observed.

Rafting in Costa Rica4th Day: adrenaline rafting and Canopy on one day (B, L, D)

What could be more exciting? With an inflatable boat, driving on lazy river through the evergreen rain forest along the Rio Sarapiquí. Monkeys screaming in the woods, dozens of different species of birds can be observed at close range. Suddenly appears the first rapids. Fortunately, before starting there is a comprehensive introduction and safety briefing. And fortunately, the security standard on our tours is extremely high. The Rio Sarapuiqui has rapids of Class 1 - 3, is therefore a bit challenging. Children under 9 will not be taken, however, as an alternative, we can offer horseback riding. In the afternoon there is a great Canopy tour over the top of the jungle.

After another little walk on a bumpy path and we get to the end of the track. At the confluence of two small mountain streams, the water mixes, and turns sky blue.
This is a chemical reaction of four different minerals of volcanic origin, such as sulfur, and calcium. The theory of the resident in the mountains Maleku Indians is much more satisfying: After God painted the sky, he rinsed the brush in the Rio Celeste.
