After your guide picks you up at a prearranged location, you will be driven to Poas volcano. We will visit a coffee farm along the way for pictures and to sample a cup of the fresh brewed beans. As we approach the volcano location, we will stop at local stands to sample and purchase locally grown strawberries and homemade cheese.
Known as one of the world’s largest geysers and craters, the volcano top is a short 15-minute walk. The panoramic view of 14,000 acres of forest and habitats will leave you speechless. It is one of the country’s most active volcano and located in the Poas National Park. A hike through the surrounding forest will give you an opportunity to see tropical plant life and exotic birds.
