Coming to Costa Rica for a conference, business meeting, or just a short stop before heading out to one of Costa Rica´s beach destinations? Our Poas Volcano Half Day Hike is perfect excursion for those short on time or business travelers in San Jose with only a few hours to escape to one of the amazing Volcano National Parks in Costa Rica.
Departing San Jose, we will head out on the scenic Pan American Highway towards the Poas Volcano National Park. Although this tour is a condensed version of our other tour to Poas Volcano, we will still take a quick stretch break in Alajuela, otherwise known as the city of Mangos. You will have a chance for a brief visit the Agriculture Monument, the Monument of Juan Santa Maria (Costa Rica's national hero), and Mango Park for some quick photos ops.
We will make a second quick stop at the Doka Coffee Plantation for a brief explanation of Costa Rica's pride and joy, their coffee beans. Try a cup of delicious Doka coffee, or buy a bag of authentic Costa Rica coffee beans for your home, or a great Costa Rica souvenir for family and friends.
Our journey continues as we wind our way to through the lush picturesque central valley to our final destination, Poas Volcano National Park! Be sure to bring layers with you, as you climb in altitude, you will realize the climate quickly changes to a cool, damp cloud forest climate unique to only a couple regions of Costa Rica. Keep your eyes peeled as we reach the Poas National Park entrance where on a clear day you will see the peak of the volcano and the steam spewing as we venture above the low-lying clouds.
At the Volcano you´ll have time to enjoy the impressive main crater as it spews steam as we hike towards the beautiful Botos Lagoon. Make sure your cameras are fully charged as there are several vantage points to take incredible photos of the crater and its continuously changing colors. As we embark along the mildly challenging journey to the lagoon, our guides will teach you all about the different ecosystems in the park. You will also have time to visit the small museum dedicated to the Costa Rica's Volcanoes and the flora and fauna that inhabit the region as well as a souvenir shop in case you want to grab a last minute memory of this amazing excursion in Costa Rica.
