As I reported April 22, Poas will re-open in June baring unforseeing circumstances.

As6most insiders know it was always less about the activity of the volcano and more about emergency preparedness plans and such.

Does anyone know why Cerro Chato is closed?

Cerro chato is frequently closed. They are rough trails that are dangerous when there's been rain. I also suspect that additional damage was done by hurricane Nate.

Hi guys

I would like to visit Poas Volcano on Friday 13th (yeah, I know LOL). Is there an official website I can check the status, as the date draws nearer?
