What you'll do

I will take you in my car to the Poás Volcano (the largest crater in the world) this is one hour from the meeting point, on the way to that volcano, you will enjoy the view of many mountains, when we reach the volcano park, you will walk by 10 minutes to reach the crater, you will be so close to the crater, maybe as never before and you can admire the volcano in all its splendor, you can get the strong gas smell of the volcano, but there is nothing to worry about. You will also have to wear a helmet, I will also show you the safe places created in case of an eruption and I will explain the history of this wonderful active volcano. The viewpoint is 20 minutes long because the volcano is really active and they are safety measures, then you will return in 10 minutes walking towards the exit of the park, then I will take you in my car to the La Paz waterfall 45 minutes from Poás Volcano, It is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Costa Rica, then we will return to the meeting point in 45 minutes.

Please provide me with passport number, full name and nationality information to make your reservation, at least 8 hours before heading to the Poás Volcano National Park.
Other things to note

We had a super great time with Denis. He was super friendly, informative and patient. He stopped at a soda after our trip because we asked. The entire experience was amazing. The waterfall, his photography, super value!

We had a two day stop over in San Jose and chose to spend one of our days with Alvaro's trip. This was a great experience visiting the Poas Volcano and the waterfall. We really enjoyed getting to know Alvaro and hearing about his experiences. He shared a lot of interesting local info and was knowledgable about the volcano. If you have an extra day in the San Jose area, I highly recommend booking your day with Alvaro!

Alvaro was so great and we had such an amazing time with him on this trip! This was an experience I couldn’t have planned on my own and I really appreciated his insight. Alvaro was very flexible with what we wanted to do and was kind and welcoming. I recommend this experience if you want to check out some of Costa Rica’s natural beauty!
