We take the Pan-American Highway towards the city of Alajuela. In route we will go by the Agriculture Monument, Juan Santamaria Monument 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 National Park.
At the volcano we will have time to observe the impressive main crater with its sulphur fumaroles. Then we will hike on a trail to the beautiful Botos Lagoon that will allow us to learn about the different ecosystems in the park.
We will continue our trip towards the Caribbean, stopping to discover La Paz Waterfall Gardens, a natural park where we will walk through many spectacular trails which will take us to the White Magic Waterfall, the most spectacular one in the area. Inside the park we will also visit the largest butterfly observatory in the country that is known as the house of collections of tropical jewels and the impressive hummingbird gallery, serpentarium, old house, bird house and frogs exhibit.
Once we have finished our walk we will take a delicious buffet lunch and then begin our return trip to San Jose.
