Poas VolcanoApprox. Time: 6 hours
Activity Level: Moderate to Strenuous

Hike Poas Volcano like Shannon and Jeff in Episode IV! The volcano is only about an hours drive from the capital city of San Jose. The summit contains a number of explosion craters and one of them contains a lake. The crater is a small turquoi lake of sulfurous steaming water. Poas is one of the main tourist attractions for Costa Rica, but violent explosions occasionally occur here.
