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!

the only volcano you can climb to the crater and see inside. smoking crater is really cool. new activity in the area. the only downside is the fog and wind which limit visibility

I have taken several tours from San Jose and the tour to Volcan Poas, La Paz waterfalls is the best. First of all the travel time on other tours are very long and boring. This tour travel time is short and all the stops are close to each other. The price for this tour is the best value of all the tours I have taken. Check out prices on the internet as they vary. Warning if you think you can rent a car or take a bus you will regret it.

As part of my study abroad program, my classmates and I were bused up the mountain for a peak at the infamous volcano. We were instructed to "bring a jacket" but we thought "hey, it's Costa Rica! How cold could it really be?" All I can say is once you rise above the could line, Costa Rica gets COLD! The view of the volcano was beautiful since the clouds were hovering below the crater, but the wind only made the weather colder. I wish I had better prepared for the climate so I could have spent more time exploring the park. On a warmer side, the muffins and hot chocolate available made the cold tollerable.

To see into the crater is beat to go early as possible in morning. Otherwise it is filled with clouds like fog. It is rainy and cool all the time, be prepared at 3500 feet.
