volcano Poas, central Costa RicaDaily tour to Poás Volcano (5 in 1)

In April 2017 Volcano Poás had strong eruptions and reopened end August 2018. You only get 20 minutes at the top and Laguna Botos is still closed. 

The active volcano “Poás” is located in the “Parque Nacional Volcán Poás”. It is one of the main attractions of Costa Rica.

The National Park is located approximately 1.5 hours north of Santa Ana or San José (Costa Rica). The last major eruption of the volcano was in 2017. The result was a 300 meter deep crater, which has the enormous diameter of 1.3 kilometers.

There are also two secondary craters, one of it with a blue lagoon. In 1989 and 1995 there were further small eruptions.

The attraction is the 2,704 meter high point which allows an amazing view into its bubbling inside, if the weather allows it. 

The tour starts quite early to the coffee plantation of Doka on the hillside of the Poás Volcano. A very interesting tour with a delicious tasting gives the tourists a great impression of the organic coffee cultivation.

The tour continues to the volcano, to hopefully take a look inside the crater. 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.

There is no laborious ascent, because a well-built footpath leads from the visitor center to the crater. It will be exciting when the Poás 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 will have a good look inside. Along this path, you will have to keep your eyes wide open, because at this altitude very rare birds may be observed.

This day trip can be combined with a visit to the famous waterfalls of La Paz in the middle of a fascinating flora and fauna. There you will visit a butterfly farm, a Ranario (Frog zoo), an Avario (aviary), with many hummingbird species. Hunting reserves as well, where you get to see various wildcat species and monkeys. Here will be served a buffet for lunch.

We offer this tour daily, starting at Santa Ana or San José.  (from 1 Pax).
