The Irazu Volcano

The Irazu Volcano is located only 24 miles from San Jose. It has an elevation of 11,260 so is cool all the time and in a cloud forrest. It is well worth the trip for San Jose it is a really cool place.

Another View

Here is another view of Irazu with clouds rolling in. I visited the Volcano in the rainy season and thought that I might no be able to see anything but it was still easy to see the down volcano and the clouds often parted for a short time.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:This is a Truly Awsome Volcano
  • Cons:little tough getting there
  • In a nutshell:If your in Costa Rica go here.
