"Poas Volcano National Park" Volcan Poas Tip by quime

Volcan Poas, Costa Rica: 30 reviews and 37 photos


The Poás Volcano soars 2.708 meters above sea level and is one of the most spectacular volcanoes of Costa Rica . The main crater is a huge depression that measures almost 2 kilometers in diameter and 300 meters deep. There is a little lake at the bottom of the crater

The high sulfur and acid content reduces the pH almost to zero, which makes it possibly the most acid natural water body of the world.

To the southeast, there is another cone known as Botos. Today it contains a spectacular cold water lake that measures about 400 meters in diameter.
Poás is known to have the largest geyser in the world.

Entrance fee US $ 7 plus parking fees
