Discover Costa Rica's wild side on this excursion from Jaco: visit the still-active Poas Volcano and the mesmerising La Paz Waterfall in the heart of the tropical jungle.
Poas Volcano & La Paz Waterfall Tour Itinerary
On the morning of your tour, after being picked up from your hotel in Jaco, you'll head to the Poas Volcano National Park, a protected nature reserve covering an area of approximately an area of approximately 16,000 acres (65 square kilometres), and home to an active volcano.
Arriving at the national park, you’ll face the imposing Poas Volcano and begin your walk up its slopes to reach the crater, whose lake is one of the most acidic in the world. With columns of smoke often seen rising from it, you’ll soon see how active the volcano is: do you know when the last eruption took place?
At almost 8,900 feet (over 2,700 m) above sea level, you’ll be able to enjoy spectacular panoramic views over the Cordillera Central, the volcanic mountain range in central Costa Rica. You’ll also spot a second, smaller lagoon known as Lake Botos, whose striking azure waters are a truly enchanting sight.
After exploring the Poas Volcano National Park, you’ll head back on the road to La Paz Waterfall, located in the heart of the tropical rainforest. Relax and admire the luscious setting off the waterfall, as well as visiting the nearby botanical gardens, where you’ll also find a butterfly house!
Enjoy a delicious lunch of local Costa Rican specialities before making the return journey to Jaco, where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel.
