Project Description

    Poas Volcano & Waterfalls

    The tour takes you on a leisurely drive through the countryside mountains to the most visited volcano in the country.  Poas Volcano has 2 craters, short hiking trails, and a visitors center to explore.  To get the best possible views of the crater you need to arrive early.  This volcano is located on the Caribbean side which receives a lot of rainfall annually.  We will continue on to the Waterfall Gardens for lunch amongst the real rainforest.  This location has many birds to see including hummingbirds, toucans, scarlet macaws as well as some wildcats, a butterfly enclosed area, snakes, frogs, a replica of an old TICO farmhouse, and finally we head down to hike along the spectacular waterfalls.
