San Jose Day Tour: Coffee Plantation, Poas Volcano & La Paz Waterfall
See as much of Costa Rica as you can while you're here! Enjoy a day of fun filled adventure while visiting three of Costa Rica’s most beautiful sites. Take an exciting day trip during your stay in San Jose. Enjoy an interesting tour at a coffee plantation where you will learn about the history and importance of coffee in Costa Rican culture and try a traditional Costa Rican lunch. Pass by the recently-very active Poas Volcano off in the distance. Finish the day outside the La Paz waterfall where you'll be able to take pictures of the breathtaking falls, birds, butterflies, monkeys, and sloths that have been spotted there.
First, we’ll drive up the mountains towards the Poas Volcano.You’ll notice a change in altitude as the temperature gets cooler and the type of vegetation changes - there are a lot of coffee, flower, fern and strawberry plantations higher in the mountains.
On the way to the volcano, we’ll visit a coffee plantation and learn about the ancient techniques of planting, harvesting and processing coffee, as well as the importance of coffee production in Costa Rica. We’ll finish the tour off with a delicious cup of coffee and a traditional lunch before continuing back down past the Poas volcano.
The Poas Volcano has been increasingly active since 2006, mostly with gas or ash eruptions instead of red lava flow. In fact, on October 8, 2014, ash was tossed over 1,000-ft high up into the air and has since been closed to visitors.
After we pass by the base of the Poas Volcano, we’ll continue on our adventure and to the beautiful La Paz waterfall for an incredible photo op before continuing on to San Jose.
This tour is perfect for people of all ages.
Please note: The Poas Volcano National Park is temporarily closed and we have changed the logistics of this day tour.
For events that could happen beyond our control we may change to a more-suitable tour with an equal or similar adventure-appeal or offer other tour options so you don`t miss out on a fun day in Costa Rica. We reserve the right to cancel a trip due to unfavorable conditions & will only run a tour according to our policies. Full refund is given if (on rare occasion) no tour is run.
