Poas Volcano National Park.
Price on request
Poas Volcano National Park is one of Costa Rica's most popular parks. Its two craters
are the big attractions and they are virtually drive-in. The first crater, over 1.5kms wide, is
filled with geysers and active fumaroles. A hot sulfurous lake sits, bubbling at the bottom,
300 meters below. The vegetation is stunted and twisted and sparse because of acid
rain and the constant emission of gasses. A second crater, Botos, is filled with deep blue
water and surrounded by damp cloud forest vegetation. There are plenty of birds here,
including the resplendent quetzal and hummingbirds.
Location: Alajuela. From two to three hours’ drive north of Jaco Beach.
Don’t forget: Tennis shoes, Shorts or Jeans, T-shirt, Jacket,
Sun block and Camera.
Alajuela, Costa Rica
