A VOLCANO OF THE CENTRAL AMERICAN VOLCANO BELT

This is a wonderful park in Alajuela Costa Rica. About an hour and a half ride from the airport hotels. Going up to the volcano, you pass some wonderful coffee plantations.

BOTOS lagoon

This is right up the trail from Volcan Poas observation area. About 20 minute hike depending on the shape you are in. It's a wonderful place to go hiking and looking at the beutiful tropical rainforest in the area. I recommend visiting this site if you plan on visiting Costa Rica. This is easy to get to, affordable and probably the best park I have ever visited.

TRAIL LEADING TO VOLCAN POAS OBSERVATION

This trail takes you through some nice foilage from the parking lot and reception center to the Volcano observation site.
