Turn your day of travel into a fun filled adventure including three of Costa Rica’s most beautiful sites: The Poas Volcano, La Paz Waterfall Gardens and the famous Doka coffee plantation where you will learn about the history and importance of coffee in Costa Rican culture.
On the way to the volcano, we will visit the Doka Coffee Plantation to learn about the ancient techniques of planting, harvesting and processing coffee. We will also talk about the importance of coffee production in Costa Rica and we will finish the tour with a delicious hot cup of Doka coffee.
Driving up the mountains towards the Poas volcano, you will notice a change in altitude as the temperature gets cooler and the vegetation changes. You will observe more coffee plantations, as well as flower, fern and strawberry farms higher in the mountains.
At the top of the volcano, you will be amazed at the gorgeous mountain views, the interesting rock formations and the massive crater filled with a stunning light blue sulfurous pool. The Poas Volcano has been active since 2006, mostly with gas or ash eruptions instead of red lava flow. In fact, on October 8th, 2014 ash was tossed over 1000 ft high up into the air. You will also have a chance to learn about the different ecosystems and wildlife found in the Poas Volcano National Park.
This full‐day visit continues in La Paz Waterfall Gardens for a delicious lunch and an interesting tour. We will at first enjoy a traditional Costa Rican lunch, and then head on a soft hike to reach the breathtaking La Paz waterfall. We will also have a chance to visit a number of attractions inside the park such as the hummingbird gallery, the serpentarium, the bird house, the butterfly garden and the frog exhibit! This tour is perfect to everyone of all ages.
