“WORK OUT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Go early in case the clouds roll in and block your view. The hike to the lake and is worth it but you better in shape if you continue on. Great work out and beautiful views.

“Favourite volcano”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Poas is a reliably interesting volcano with easy access, well worth visiting. Even in the wet season you can usually see down into the boiling mud and water in the crater, and they sayon clear days in the dry season you can see both coasts.

“An amazing day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Seeing Volcan Poas is amazing, looking down into the crater of an active volcano is an unforgettable experience and a must see when in CR. It is a short drive from San Jose. We did a day tour which stopped at a coffee plantation, waterfalls, the cloud forest, and of course, the volcano. My daughter and I were at the Grand Canyon in March and felt the same awe on this trip.

great view 30 minutes before the rains came. Be prepared to do some uphill walking to experience the "prize sight"
