Poas Volcano and La Paz Waterfall Gardens
This excursion has become the iconic activity for years now for our guests at B&B Vista Atenas.
Starting early in the morning, you will be picked up by our driver Eduardo to head out through the town of Grecia up into the mountains that belong to the central volcanic range of Costa Rica. Miles of spectacular views and green pastures across a wonderful dairy farm area, paired with the extra pure and fresh air that characterizes areas above 2000 mts /6500 feet in our country.
The first stop at the little village of Poasito at one of our recommendations for breakfast, there you will be welcome by its friendly staff and a freshly brewed cup of coffee along with some typical costarican “Gallo Pinto” will provide for the energy for the rest of the trip. Immediately afterwards the drive continues for 5 more kilometers (3 miles) to the National Park Poas Volcano, at this feat of nature you will be amazed of the luxuriant vegetation and the astounding 2 kilometer wide diameter crater. You may also enjoy the 30-minute walk to the ancient crater known as “Laguna Botos” which is nowadays a beautiful lagoon.
The next stop after this volcanic experience we will drive you to La Paz Waterfalls, this unique place will allow you to experience within the span of 2 hours, hummingbirds flying right next to you, toucans eating from your fingers, butterflies making their dance in clouds and the astonishing waterfalls that precipitate from a height that looks impossible. At the facilities you will also be provided with an exquisite buffet lunch. On the way back to the B&B Vista Atenas, you will have the chance to buy some delicious strawberries and cheese produced in the area
