Poás Volcano National Park

Alajuela, Costa Rica
Sam V's rating: 5
The Poas Volcano National Park is a great place to do some hiking. Nothing too strenuous though. If the clouds permit, you get to see the breath taking view down into the Poas Volcano. If you are up for a little bigger hike there is a beautiful lake to see too. For the curious mind there is a small museum area that educates you about the history of the Poas Volcano, and also about the wildlife in the area. The altitude here is quite high, so it is a little chilly. A jacket and maybe some pants are recommended. You want to arrive at the National Park early so that you beat the clouds. A trip to the La Paz Waterfall park after seeing the volcano rounds out a perfect day trip. The Poas Volcano National Park is about 1 hour from Atenas.
