Full description

See the beauty that lives within Tenorio Volcano National Park. Travel with your guide past waterfalls, active volcanos, and the bright Blue Lagoon. Enjoy lunch on your tour.

After being picked up from your hotel in San Jose, you'll be driven to begin your day-long tour with your guide through Tenorio Volcano National Park. First, stop at the Celeste River Waterfall, which cascades over a 20-meter drop.

Next, climb to the highest point on the trail to take in views of volcanic craters. On a good weather day, you'll see Tenorio 1, Tenorio 2, and Montezuma.

Then visit the Blue Lagoon. Then, cross two wooden bridges to reach the "Teñideros," which is where the river takes its blue color and where the explanation for this curious phenomenon is given.

Finally, see the fumaroles which will remind you that we are in an active volcano. The panoramic view provides a perfect photo opportunity. Follow the same trail and enjoy a delicious lunch to conclude your tour.
