volcano Poas, Costa RicaPoás Volcano Alajuela

In April 2017 Volcano Poás had strong eruptions and reopened to the public end of August 2018. 

The Poas Volcano is one of the most visited volcanoes in the world.

The 2708 m high volcano is located just a short 1 hour drive away from Santa Ana. It is located in the national park, which covers an area of 5600 hectares. The volcano is considered active, even though it is usually quiet and resting. Since 1928, it has erupted 39 times, last time a heavy eruption in April 2017.

Vulkan Poas, Zentraltal Costa Rica

The volcano has two large craters, the main crater measures 1500 m in diameter and 300 meters deep to its base, you can watch a steaming lagoon. The north crater is much smaller and it is filled with a sky-blue lagoon, the Laguna Botos. On the circuit trail to Laguna Botos, you may have luck and watch very rare bird species. Hummingbirds are very common, but the rare quetzal has been spotted as well.

To enter the park you will have to pay an entry fee of U.S. $ 15 (as a foreigner). There is a nice, not very strenuous trail to Laguna Botos, which takes about 40 minutes by walking. Located at the entrance is a small Café, a gift shop and a museum, which is about the Poás Volcano and other volcanoes in general.
