Let’s Go to the Irazú Volcano!

Visit the fascinating Irazú Volcano, the highest volcano in the country at 3,432 m. Our guided tour takes you by public bus from the city center to the Irazú Volcano National Park and back.

During your ride (about 2 hours from San José), you will learn interesting facts about the former capital city of Cartago, which you will pass through before winding up to the summit and the national park entrance. There you will pay your entrance fee. Then, our guide will lead you along the dormant crater and inform you about the geography of Costa Rica, its climate zones and active volcanoes. The views are spectacular on a clear day. After that, you’ll return back to San José.
