Poas Volcano National Park / Grecia / Sarchí

From: $64


 On route to the Poás Volcano National Park we will drive by the city of Alajuela to see the Agriculture Monument, the Monument to Juan Santamaria and the famous Mango Park. As we ascend towards the volcano we will notice the change in temperature and vegetation, preparing us for the pleasure of the exuberant cloud forest of the Poás Volcano.

On the road to the volcano besides coffee plantations, we will also see fern, flower and strawberry farms along the way.

At the Volcano we will not only have time to admire the impressive main crater with its sulfur fumaroles, but also to walk to the beautiful Botos Lagoon, and to learn about the different ecosystems in the park.

Then, we will go and visit Grecia, considered one of the cleanest towns of Latin America and home of the only Metal Church in Central America, a national monument that the inhabitants of this town feel proud of. The tour of Grecia will end with a visit to its Central Market.

This excursion will continue to Sarchí, known as the Cradle of Costa Rican Artisans because of its fine workshops. Here we will have time to enjoy the artistic work of the local artisans, learn about the famous hand painted Costa Rican oxcart and shop for that special souvenir to take home.
