The Poas Volcano is one of the world's largest geysers with an awesome crater, over 1.5 km. wide! The volcano is active, but completely safe for viewing. The tour begins by taking the Pan-American Highway towards the city of Alajuela. In route we will go by the Monument to Juan Santamara 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. At the Volcano we will have time to observe the impressive main crater with its sulfur fumaroles, and then begin our return trip to San Jose.
