Irazu Volcano

The last time Volcán Irazú awoke was in the first half of the 1960’s, when, for four years it showered the residents of Cartago and San José with ash, clogged the air with smoke, and sent glowing boulders rolling down its sides.

Today, as you travel along the southern slope of the volcano to the park, the potato, onion, and cabbage fields give way to dairy farms at higher elevations. The next eruption can’t be predicted with much accuracy, but currently the only activity in the crater is from fumaroles releasing toxic steam.

Poás Volcano National Park and Waterfall Gardens Tour

After a scenic drive through Alajuela, arrive at Poás Volcano, one of the deepest active volcanoes in the world.

Having erupted last in 1978, Poás emits a continuous flow of steam from vents adjacent to a lake deep within the main crater.

Hike to the second crater, with a crystal clear rain-fed lake surrounded by lush tropical jungle, located a half-mile away via a trail through dwarf cloud forest.

Among the 80 species of birds reported, several are unique to this unusual habitat. Then visit the La Paz Waterfalls and Gardens – a beautiful private wildlife refuge.

Hike along nature trails and across suspended bridges to see 4 waterfalls including the magnificent La Paz, lots of wildlife, a butterfly garden, orchid garden, hummingbird garden and more in this cloud forest and rain forest.

Arenal Volcano and Hot Springs

This almost perfect shaped volcano was covered with vegetation before 1968. Just before the big eruption during the year 1968, the people noticed that the cows could not drink water from the Tabacon River because of the rising temperature.

After this, the volcano erupted violently covering more than 7 square kilometers ( 4.2 square miles ) with lava. Since that moment the volcano has been erupting daily at different levels of activity.

This is one of the greatest spectacles of a visit to Costa Rica. It is incredible to observe and hear an eruption by daylight or by night. Seeing the lava rocks glowing down the hill at night is something you will never forget.
