Irazu Volcano

Once we leave the Pan-American highway we will begin the ascent to the volcano. During our trip we will observe several typical plantations of the region such as potatoes, onions, garlic, beets, as well as the cattle farms, without leaving aside the incomparable view of the central valley. Upon reaching the top you can see the main craters Irazú, Playa Hermosa and Diego de la Haya. On a sunny day, both the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans could be seen from a distance.

This majestic volcano is the highest in our country with an altitude of 3432 meters (11000 feet) above sea level. During the period from 1963 to 1965, it maintained gas and ash eruptions.

After an exciting tour of the volcano, we will descend to the historic city of Cartago founded in 1563 by the conquistador Juan Vázquez de Coronado, which was the capital of Costa Rica during the colonial period until 1823. There we will observe some mysterious ruins of a old parish and you can visit the wonderful Basilica of the Virgin of Los Angeles, which is the patron saint of Costa Rica
