San Jose, Costa Rica

What to Do


Volcan Poas
by Thuan about 8 years ago

This is an easy hike volcano for everyone. The views are the volcano crater and a lagoon. The entrance fee is $10 although you might be able to get away with that since no one checks for the ticket. Plan about 2 hours at the park.
A cheap way to get there from San Jose is to take a bus from TUASA. There is only one bus daily at 8:30AM (~$4000 colones/roundtrip; yes foreigners have to pay more). The bus terminal is between Calle 12 and Calle 14 on Ave 2. You need to make sure to come back to the bus by 2pm because the driver will not wait for you.
