The total stay at the Poas Volcano National Park will be 40 minutes: 10 minutes walking on the trek to get to the crater viewpoint, 20 minutes at the crater viewpoint, and 10 minutes walking back. There is no access to Botos Lagoon and in case of fog, there is no extra waiting time as we used to do in the past. Due to the altitude and activity of the Poas Volcano, this tour is not recommended to any person with heart conditions, high blood pressure, people who have had a recent surgery, pregnant women or children. As we ascend the mountain, we will notice a change in temperature and vegetation; we will see coffee plantations as well as fern, flower and strawberry farms along the way, creating a beautiful array of colors and visuals.
