What To Expect

Irazu Volcano National Park
The main attraction of this great tour is the Irazú Volcano with 3 sub craters and fumaroles in its beautiful turquoise lagoon, it is the highest active volcano in Costa Rica, just one hour from San José, this volcano is at 3,432 meters above sea level, being the second highest point in Costa Rica.

From the top of the volcano it is possible to appreciate the central volcanic mountain range, made up of 3 other volcanoes, it is possible to appreciate the central valley in its entirety and also on a clear day it is possible to see both oceans (Pacific and Atlantic) at the same time.

Is cloudy? Don't worry, the clouds usually stay below the top of the volcano, this also allows you to have beautiful views, similar to those we have in a high altitude plane, but don't forget your coat!

Ruinas de Ujarras
The Ruins of Ujarrás has the vestiges of a colonial church in Costa Rica. This church of lime and stone was short, and its roof was made of clay tiles. The Ruins of Ujarrás, is the only thing that remains of the first church built in Costa Rica during the 17th century, and they are appreciated as a reliquary from the colonial era. A place of great importance since it was a settlement of the Huetar indigenous people, it was abandoned in 1833.

The indigenous population of Ujarrás became extinct at the beginning of the 18th century, so it became a mestizo town. Florencio del Castillo, who was President of the Cortes of Cádiz, was born there. Thanks to his efforts, Ujarrás was erected as a town in 1813.

Due to several fever epidemics, the town of Ujarrás was abandoned between 1832 and 1833, and its neighbors moved to the territory known as Llanos de Santa Lucía, today Paraíso.

Loved our trip to the top of Irazu and Cartago. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable took plenty of photos of us.
We thought this was a great mix of things to see and do and Orosi was beautiful shame we didn't spend a little more time there. For me the trip could've started a little later as the lunch stop which was amazing food was at 11am.
Volcano Irazu Plus

We were fortunate to experience the Irazu Volcano during a period of cloudless sky. Our first time to be present on a volcano. We benefited from the knowledge of our friendly and experienced guide Jean (Jon). He educated us on the area, the volcano's history and took us through some of the surrounding vegetation to experience the temperature change. At the observatory we enjoyed a beautiful panoramic view of the area.

The tour continued with the peaceful and secluded Orosi Valley outside Cartago, The Basilica of Our Lady of the Angels in Cartago, and the Santigo Apostol Ruins also in Cartago.

Our guide provided a comfortable and efficient drive to the four sites. Jon was a first class guide and we both enjoyed his company throughout the day.
Beautiful place

The way up the volcano is full of interesting agrarian views.
We were very blessed to see into the crater and the Laguna was torques and stunning.
We enjoyed it greatly.
