After the INBioparque we hit the road to The Poas Volcano National Park, located in the province of Alajuela. Sadly we couldn't see it because of the foggy weather. Poás is another of Costa Rica's most active volcanoes, The 2,708 meter stratovolcano lies within two vast calderas. The southernmost of two summit crater lakes, Botos, is cold and clear, and last erupted about 7,500 years ago. The other is warm and acidic and has been the site of frequent eruptions since the first was reported in 1828. Eruptions often feature geyserlike ejections of lake water.
Some information about the Poas Volcano:
After we travel near three hours on the bus, while driving we were able to appreciate the natural beauty of Costa Rica! On the way to our hotel ( Lavas Tacotal Lodge) our guide surprised us with some unplanned stops at "La Paz Waterfall", "La Fortuna de San Carlos" and "San Fernando Waterfall".
Enjoy the pictures!
