Full description
Start your adventure with a relaxing private 1-hour drive through the countryside on air-conditioned transportation. Later explore Irazú Volcano, the highest active volcano in Costa Rica. Learn from your professional tour guide and marvel at the panoramic views of the National Park. The volcano is still active although the last major eruptions were between 1963 and 1965. In Costa Rica, it is known as The Colossus due to the catastrophes it provoked in the past. Discover its several craters and lakes surrounded by montane forest and local fauna. After an exciting tour around the volcano, descend to the historical city of Cartago. Once there, visit the mysterious ruins of the old parish and the beautiful Basilica of Our Lady of the Angels with rich displays of carvings, statues and art.
