This tour takes us across coffee plantations and scenic vistas. As we ascend the terrain, we will notice a change in temperature and vegetation; we will see coffee plantations, as well as fern, flower and strawberry farms along the way, creating a beautiful array of colors and textures. As we arrive at La Paz Waterfall Gardens, we will enjoy a scrumptious lunch before heading towards the rain and cloud forest for a hike that will reveal five waterfalls: Templo, Magia Blanca, Encantada, Escondida and La Paz.

Anyone peering into Poás enormous crater with its boiling, sulfurous lake is reminded of the great power of nature. The volcano’s active crater is one of the largest in the world measuring 1.5 km (1 mile), and the sight of the smoking fumaroles and greenish-turquoise sulfurous lake at the bottom is breathtaking. Poás Volcano National Park protects a spectacular cloud forest that offers tempting trails that lead you through the exotic flora of this unique environment.
