rainforest Vulkan Barvavolcano BarvaWonderful, lonely hike paths lead through an intact cloud forest, a little physical challenge which is definitely worth it. 
The volcano Barva has not been active for a long time. It is part of the Braulio Carrillo national park, the biggest and most important one in the Central Valley. 

We would like to invite you to an exciting day in the tropical cloud forest, lonely and calm with an impressive flora and fauna.

Your breath-taking adventure begins with a pickup from your hotel and a relaxing private drive through the wonderful Costa Rican countryside on an air-conditioned vehicle. You will be heading to the top of the Central Volcanic Mountain Range, Barva Sector, about a 90 minutes’ drive from San Jose.

Barva Volcano is the highest part of Braulio Carrillo National Park, standing almost 3000 m above sea level. Located on the eastern side of the mountain is a lake which includes the volcanic crater. It is called "Laguna de Barva". On the western side the volcano has three hills on the top which are called "Las Tres Marías". The fog is typical over here and is conducive to the eerie atmosphere of the forest. A view into the crater lake of the 2.906 high volcano is possible from two different positions. Another path leads to the adventitious crater, called the "Lagoon Copey".

Barva Volcano is an excellent place to explore the majestic beauty of the Costa Rican landscape. The area around the mountain features dozens of hiking trails of varying difficulty. Stag Horn Path, which winds around the base of the volcano, offers incredible views of the Barva Lagoon, the largest caldera in Braulio Carrillo National Park. This route leads to the Copey Lagoon Trail, which also boasts remarkable views of the Central Valley.

Barva Volcano is one of Costa Rica's most impressive natural wonders, and the memories of a trip to this mighty mountain are sure to last a lifetime.
