Day 1. San José - Poás Volcano National Park - Villa Blanca Cloud Forest

This morning, one of our guide/drivers will meet you at the lobby of your hotel in San José. From here you will depart for a guided transfer to San Ramón where the hotel Villa Blanca is located.

On the way you will visit the Poas Volcano National Park with your guide. Poas Volcano is a restless giant with one of the world's largest active craters -1,5 km (5000ft) wide. Aside from walking to visit the crater's viewing point, you will also have the chance to hike through the nearby cloud forest to the Botos Lagoon, a former crater turned beautiful lagoon. The viewing terrace provides a bird's-eye view 320m down into the bowels of the volcano, with its greenish sulfuric pool. You'll also get a magnificent view of the northern lowlands. If you would like to learn more about the park and volcanoes you can browse the visitor's center, where you can also enjoy a cup of Costa Rican coffee or buy some souvenirs.

After this guided walk the tour continues to San Ramón. If you would like to have lunch at a local restaurant (lunch not included on the rate) your driver can recommend a good restaurant. Upon arrival to the hotel check in, and spend the rest of the day at leisure.
