Beyond expectations

The tour was amazing and beyond our expectations! Our guide took us to many places on the way to the volcano (coffee field, wine and cheese tasting) and had a lot of knowledge to share about Costa Rica. We had a great time and the tour lasted for about 5 hours

View into an active volcano’s crater!!!!

This is a must see experience while visiting San Jose. It is an active volcano, at our visit in February, the park just reopened after a two year closure due to an eruption. Entrance into the park is limited. You or your tour group MUST have a timed reservation. You will be required to wear a helmet, be escorted in a small group by a guide and only allowed at the top for 20 minutes. (Plenty of time) An ambulance type vehicle can transport the handicapped to the top. ALL concessions, and facilities except for restrooms at the entrance station are closed. No concessions or restrooms at the top. The view into the crater may be clouded over! Best to go early in the morning (by 9) and check the website and webcam for weather. If there are clouds... you will not see inside the crater! Or get your money back! If it is clear, the view is awesome! There are steam vents located around the crater’s lake that spew steam across the water and into the air. The desolate area around the crater edge shows the effects of the eruptions. Yellow paint circles the potholes made in the cement and metal railings from the last eruption. This tour stopped at a beautiful coffee plantation and we waited there until our appointed time.

Armando was a very professional driver, I felt comfortable the whole trip. It was nice to be a passenger instead of driving myself so that I could take in all the scenery from San Jose' to the volcano.

No pudimos ver el volcan porque estaba nublado. Pero nuestro chófer Yuri y nuestro guía Oscar, fueron super amables y atentos, hicieron que mi visita fuera increíble.

Hola Maria Fernanda. Muchas gracias por tu comentario y lamentamos que el Volcan no se ha podido dejar ver. La Naturaleza es imprescindible. Pero nos alegra mucho saber que nuestro chofer y guía dieron lo mejor para que el resto de su día fuera fantástico. Pura vida !!
