For seeing small pond, even blue color, the price is reaally far too high. Now, bus goes only sat and sundays, so you have to rent a car or take a taxi. Most things are closed, so you got only a short Road to crater. If you are Lucky, you can see the lake down there. If not, you see only clouds. Being lucky is vital, becouse you are allowed to spend only 20 minutes there. (french guys before us complained that they were not allowed to spend more time - which is obvious for safety reason-and they Say only clouds.when they asked for discunt for next day, park ranger laughed). We saw the lake down there. It was fine. Blue-green lake All in all-there are better vews around the area.in my opinion it doesnt Worth it.

We purchased tickets online through the somewhat cumbersome process. Entering the park was fine, and there was a brief orientation in Spanish. We were asked to wear hardhats. When we reached the viewing point after about a ten minute walk, all we saw is fog. I'm sure that it is amazing when clear, so be sure to check the forecast before going.

Not often that you get to see a live volcano. Beautiful colors in the lagoon, shades of turquoise and yellow. We did not find the short walk up from the check in station taxing in the least, it is gradual and paved. Knowledgeable staff. We had reservation for 8 a.m. which was a tad too early as we had to wait for them to open. Well worth the visit.

I’m getting quite a lot questions under my blog post about Poas volcano, it is pretty straightforward to get there, I can see some people are having difficulties getting in, sometimes it may be to cloudy to see anything but I would still encourage to try, this place is magnificent!!
