    What to Expect

    The trip begins by ascending the breathtaking summit of the Irazu Volcano, passing all 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 Atlantic and Pacific Oceans!

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

    Stop At:

    • Santuario Nacional Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles, Calle 1, Cartago Costa Rica

    Fila was our guide and George was our driver; what a team. Pick up was prompt and File met us in our Hotel. He asked us all to introduce ourselves so we would know who was in the group and where we all were from. The ride was smooth and I never worked a moment. Fila knew all

    Nice views. Make sure you bring a jacket, it’s pretty cold up there. Lots of clouds: can’t see very far

    Pick up was supposed to be at 6:20 and the bus arrived around 7:00. Guess this is what you have to expect everywhere no matter which tour you take. We had a few more pick ups in other hotels until we started driving to the top. Our guides were really friendly and explained

    Beautiful view, it's cold there so it's recommendable to bring a jacket. The road was excellent, excellent scenery and a friendly staff.
