We had a great time with our driver Andreas! It was a fairly long trek through the surrounding areas of San Jose, but the volcano itself was breathtaking. It was even emitting some nasty airs that had the mid-level alarm light blinking. All that for one low, low price! Take the trip, engage the driver, see the sights, and stop for delicious strawberries along the way.


Easy walk, with great view once you arrive. Hard hats and eruption shelters provided a touch of reality, but I would recommend this experience if you have time. However, we spent 1.5 hours in the am picking up passengers at hotels around the city.


buyer beware. they didn't tell me it was cancelled until i emailed them to ask when they would pick me up. As of 1 week later they didn't refund me for a trip they cancelled. I am now submitting it to my credit card company to address.


Vale a pena ver uma cratera de um vulcão ativo de perto e de cima. Inclusive tem monitoramento 24hs. Acho que última vez que entrou em erupção foi em 2017. Achei muito legal.


Abbiamo partecipato all'escursione al vulcano Poas e alla piantagione di caffé Doka. Eravamo gli unici viaggiatori, quel giorno, quindi abbiamo avuto un'auto e una guida tutta per noi. La nostra guida, Adrian, è stata perfetta. Grande professionalità, puntualità, gentilezza. Ci ha fatto scoprire molti aspetti interessanti dei luoghi visitati. Davvero un'esperienza positiva, che raccomandiamo.


Quando você vai indo pelo caminho você cria uma expectativa muito grande, afinal o que você vê pelas imagens é muito bonito. Quando você chega lá e, vê pessoalmente a cratera do vulcão é espetacular, fantástico, incrível, extraordinário. O azul claro, da cor do mar, faz do vulcão Poás uma das grandes maravilhas da Terra.


Son lugares que hay que ir a conocer !! es un lugar espectacular y único volcán poas . San jose Costa Rica recomendaciones ir temprano para verlo bien espejado.


Fue una experiencia increible , es de cierta manera un contacto con la naturaleza que no podemos apreciar en el diario vivir de la ciudad , ademas los turistas son recibidos por un equipo de personas que te explican atravez de videos lo riesgos y lo que debes hacer en caso de emergencia. Si van a subir a poas no te olvides de hacer tu cita en internet para poder entrar


El guía súper atento y llegó antes de la hora indicada, pero aún así no pudimos ver el Volcán por cuestiones del clima. El solo un servicio de transportación, no incluye nada más así que tómenlo en cuenta.


El volcán está activo por lo que solo se puede hacer un camino hasta el balcón desde donde se ve. Se realiza con un guía que va explicando. Es muy entretenido , son 700 metros de caminata y 20’ se puede estar en el balcón . Tuvimos la suerte de que estaba despejado así que lo vimos perfecto. Has e cerca de 29 años visite el parque y lo pude recorrer mejor a varios senderos que te llevan a una Laguna, pero hoy en día eso no se permite por lo que esta actividad el volcán y sería muy difícil la evacuación. IMPORTANTE. deben comprarse las entrada online ÚNICAMENTE en la página del SICA.
