What you'll do

I will take you in my car to the Poás Volcano (the largest crater in the world) this is one hour from the meeting point, on the way to that volcano, you will enjoy the view of many mountains, when we reach the volcano park, you will walk by 10 minutes to reach the crater, you will be so close to the crater, maybe as never before and you can admire the volcano in all its splendor, you can get the strong gas smell of the volcano, but there is nothing to worry about. You will also have to wear a helmet, I will also show you the safe places created in case of an eruption and I will explain the history of this wonderful active volcano. The viewpoint is 20 minutes long because the volcano is really active and they are safety measures, then you will return in 10 minutes walking towards the exit of the park, then I will take you in my car to the La Paz waterfall 45 minutes from Poás Volcano, It is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Costa Rica, then we will return to the meeting point in 45 minutes.

Please provide me with passport number, full name and nationality information to make your reservation, at least 8 hours before heading to the Poás Volcano National Park.
Other things to note
Please do not forget to wear a coat.

Álvaro was fantastic! It was nice to have a personal tour with him in his car. Sadly, it was too cloudy to see the crater but Álvaro made sure we got to see/do many other neat things on the tour including the Paz waterfall and stopping at the Starbucks coffee plantation! He took some really great pictures for us and even recommended a delicious restaurant at the end where he dropped us off. Highly recommend his services!

Fantastic tour! I had to stay a few more days to get a timely covid 19 test before returning to the states so I was lucky to schedule this tour. It was perfect. The crater is really impressive, the waterfall is fun and the information about the area provided by Alvaro was informative. He was never at a loss for an answer about the area including plant and animal life. I need to get out in nature more often but I plan to do this tour again when I return.

This is an absolute must do! If you’re staying in San Jose before moving on somewhere else, you have to take this tour! Álvaro is so knowledgable about the area and is super friendly. Highly recommend.

Álvaro has awesome energy and a real passion for his tours. This tour is a must for anyone visiting San José or Alajeula - a lot of action is packed into a few hours. Álvaro was accommodating to any requests we had and offered many suggestions for our time in Costa Rica. Fantastic value and highly recommended!

The trip was a little more than half a day, and we enjoyed every minute of it. Not your typical guide who just shows you around, Álvaro is more of a host - sharing his passion for the wonders his country has to offer, in addition to taking you those beautiful sites. Very friendly and personable. Poás was great, we were lucky enough to avoid the clouds and fog that came in right after our 20 minutes there. Then he took us to the La Paz falls. The heavy rain that started did not take anything away from this beautiful site - Alvaro came prepared with slickers for us! And after that, we concluded our tour with a visit to the Starbucks Alsacia coffee farm, another gorgeous place - even if you're not a Starbucks fan. Very relaxing, and beautiful views. When the tour was over, he even took the time to drop us off at our hotel. This experience was absolutely worth the cost and the time, we highly recommend it!
