Admire the majestic and imposing crater of Poás Volcano at 2.708 meters, high and enjoy a magnificent view of the central valley and its enormous crater, considered one of the largest in the world.

We drive up the Pan-American Highway towards the city of Alajuela. In route we will go by the Agriculture Monument, the Monument to Juan Santamaria and the famous Mango Park. As we ascend towards the volcano we will stop for a brief explanation of our golden bean, the coffee and then continue our trip through fern, flower and strawberry farms.

There is a noticeable change in temperature and vegetation, preparing us for the pleasure of the exuberant cloud forest of Poas Volcano. Once we reach the top we will have time to observe the impressive main crater with its sulfur fumaroles, and then begin our return trip to San Jose.
