SCENIC DRIVE TO POAS:  After a 7:30 am pick-up from your hotel we’ll travel 11 miles on the Pan American Highway to the provincial capital of Alajuela to see 2 points of interest your knowledgeable guide will tell you about. From here our scenic drive towards the Poás Volcano Cloud Forest National Park takes us up the slopes of the Central Volcanic Mountain Range through beautiful landscape adorned with coffee, dairy, strawberry, flower and fern farms in addition to quaint typical small towns with well-kept homes.

COFFEE PLANTATION SHOP to sample and purchase if you wish top quality roasted coffee while taking in the beautiful views of the rolling landscape of coffee plantations and of the Central Valley below.

POAS VOLCANO:  At approximately 9:00 a.m. we’ll enter the cloud forest of the Poás Volcano National Park where we'll walk 500 scenic yards on a flat paved pathway to the crater, located at a cool 8,900 ft. above sea level.  Your guide will show you the beautiful giant leaves of the “Poor Man’s Umbrella” plant, epiphytes (air plants) and other plant species unique to the lush tropical cloud forest ecosystem that lines the walk to the crater.  From the crater’s rim you’ll have the unique experience of  looking down 1,000 ft. into an active volcano crater that's nearly 1 mile in diameter and constantly emitting sulfur fumes and steam.  The crater's array of colorful rock strata, aqua green colored acid lake surrounded by tropical could forest and barren old lava floe rock formations together with the spectacular views of the surrounding landscape, gives your experienced professional guide plenty to tell you about.

VIEW STOPS:  After leaving Poás around 10:30 a.m. we'll make brief stops with a fantastic high view of the central valley below.

Grecia & Sarchi Towns: About an hour or so after leaving Poas we'll stop for lunch in or after the town of Grecia (Greece) with a steel church imported from Belguim in 1894 before continuing on for a quick stop at the town of Sarchi famous for its oxcart factory and souvenir shops.

Grecia's Steel Church

Zarcero's Topiary Garden Park

WATERFALL:   Later by way of a scenic mountain road and hidden valley we'll visit the spectacular "Toro" (“Bull") waterfall,. This impressive waterfall cascades some 500 ft down an extinct volcanic crater to continue as a pristine river towards the northern plains.
