Description

Irazu Volcano is situated within the Central Mountain Range, just a few kilometers from Cartago, and it is a relatively short and pleasant drive away from the capital city of San Jose. The trip leads up to a spectacular view of the massive crater, which is home to a lagoon with a mystical green hue surrounded by jagged rocks. The moonlike landscape is breathtaking and the air is pristine.

The trip begins by ascending the breathtaking summit of the volcano, on a road traversing different types and forms of vegetation (from coffee plantations to ferns) depending on the elevation.

The trip leads up to a spectacular view of the massive crater, which is home to a lagoon with a mystical green hue surrounded by jagged rocks. It should be mentioned, that on a clear day you can actually see both the Caribbean and Pacific coasts.

After an exciting tour of the volcano, you will descend to the historical city of Cartago. Here you will visit the mysterious ruins of the old Parish and take in the beautiful Virgin of the Angels (Virgen de los Angeles) Basilica, with rich displays of carvings, statues, and other art.
