San Jose, central highlands and central valleys: Visit Poas volcano

Visit Us

Visit Poas volcano

A desolate expanse of rock rises up on all sides to enclose a surreal, milky turquoise lake at the top of Poas volcano. Within the crater you can often see misty fumaroles of smoke, hinting at the volatile energy that forged this harsh, ruptured landscape.

After a drive past strawberry farms and coffee plantations, you'll arrive at a viewing platform perched on the summit of Poas to look down into the vast bowl of the crater – it's an incredible panorama and one of Costa Rica's most famous sights.
