Poas Volcano National Park Tours

There aren’t too many places in the world where you can almost touch the rim of an active volcano, but at Poas Volcano National Park you can get up close to the smoking crater.

One of the world’s most accessible volcanoes, Poas Volcano is filled with an amazing aquamarine lagoon, blanketed in ferns and ringed with hiking trails leading to panoramic lookouts and picnic areas.

The park is filled with wildlife to spot, including the famous quetzal, toucans and hummingbirds.

The best visibility is December to April, and especially in the early morning.

Practical Info

Poas Volcano National Park is 54 km (34 miles) from San Jose, accessible by public bus or organized tour. The closest town is Poasito.
