“Don't go on a rainy day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Beautiful park; we visited in November, the tail end of the rainy season. We enjoyed our walk through the rain forest. But it was very misty and when we arrived at the volcano could see nothing. Would love to return in the winter months on a summer day.

“Poas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

On our Caravan tour. Great views, lucky that clouds minimal. About a quarter mile slight uphill walk to crater. Much tougher if try for the lagune.

“Unlucky timing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Not much I can really say about the Volcan Poas. Visited the volcano on two saparate trips and both days it was rainy and overcast so we never really saw it except for a few minutes when a gust of wind blew the low lying clouds away for a brief moment, allowing us a quick photo op. I am sure it is beautiful on a clear day.

“Great, but not if its foggy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We went to visit in the morning (we were on a half day tour). The hike was great, but it was pretty foggy still so we were only able to get a few half glimpses of the volcano. The hike to the lagoon was uphill and chilly. Be sure to bring a jacket and warm clothes. The lagoon was also fogged up so there wasn't anything to see.

It would be amazing to see the volcano and lagoon clearly, but no one can really predict the weather. Since we were only there for a half day tour, we didn't have the time to wait out the fog.
