The Poas Volcano is among the most visited national parks in the Costa Rican National Park System. It features two extremely impressive craters, one of which holds a lovely blue lagoon.
At 2704 meters high, you will find the first crater 1.3km wide and 300m deep.
Great opportunity for a snapshot from the observation deck!!! The second crater, Laguna Botos, is a lake surrounded by dense cloud forest. Here, you will find a variety of hummingbird species and various types of exotic birds.
The surrounding national park boasts an extensive trail system that offers beautiful views of the Central Valley and San Jose metropolitan area. During the tour, we will also visit the town of Sarchi, which is famous for its woodworking and handicraft markets.
