Irazu Volcano Tour
San Jose and Central Valley, Costa Rica
Enjoy spectacular views of Irazu's volcanic crater lake and, on a clear day, both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Pass through a variety of vegetation as you ascend its slopes, exploring coffee plantations and fern forest before reaching the summit.
The Irazu Volcano is settled among Costa Rica´s central mountain range, minutes away from downtown San José. Getting there takes a picturesque drive through a beautiful road that passes through coffee, flower, potato and vegetable plantations and cloud forests that open up to magnificent views of the city. Admire the spectacular views of Irazu's massive crater an its mystical green lagoon surrounded by jagged rocks. On a clear day you can view both the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean from there.
After an exciting tour of the volcano, continue on to the historical city of Cartago, taking in the Basilica of our Virgin of Los Ángeles with rich displays of carvings, statues and other art.
