“Due to the altitude and activity of the Poás Volcano, this tour is not recommended to any person with heart conditions, high blood pressure, people who have had a recent surgery, or pregnant women”.
As we ascend the mountain, we will notice a change in temperature and vegetation; we will see coffee plantations as well as fern, flower, and strawberry farms along the way, creating a beautiful array of colors and visuals.
We will visit the Coffee Plantation for a delicious breakfast. Then we will be treated to a coffee tour in an actual coffee plantation where we will learn the ancient techniques used by the experts to produce some of the best coffee in Costa Rica and around the world. The careful process involved in the cultivation, harvesting, and roasting of the Golden Bean will then be illustrated, very hands-on, and then we will savor the delectable product.
After the coffee tour, we will continue to Poás Volcano National Park, where there is a noticeable change in temperature and exuberant vegetation of the cloud forest.
The Poás Volcano is an active 2,708-metre (8,885 ft) stratovolcano. The crater of the volcano is over a mile across and 1050 feet deep. It has erupted 40 times since 1828, including April 2017.
At the Volcano, we will have time to enjoy the impressive main crater with its sulfur fumaroles and hike on the trail as we learn about the different ecosystems in the park.
