“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

This was a gorgeous place to go. All of the guides knew a lot of interesting facts about the volcano. I would definitely recommend checking this park out.

“Excelent place to visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

It was really nice, when we when there, the weather was really nice and I cold see all the volcano. We did it from San Jose in a day trip and it very good if you want to do some thing from San Jose one day.

“Good trip, great value,steep climb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

The park is lovely and a bit cool in places, but truly worth it. On a clear day you can see not quite forever but you CAN get a good view of both coasts that border Costa Rica.Be sure to stop by the many vendors selling fresh, sweet strawberries, as my tico friend told me,"Strawberries grow like grass here" so the price is the lowest and the berries abundant!

“Poas volcano”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Took a tour of the volcano, the Boca coffee plantation and the waterfall park. Fantastic tour with knowlegeable guides who had all kinds of interesting facts about the plants and animals we saw. Reasonably priced and it was an all day affair with breakfast and lunch included. Well worth it!
