Poas Volcano One Day Tour This full day tour introduces you to a nice mixture of places – a coffee plantations areas, an active volcano, and the quaint town of Sarchí, known widely as the craft capital of Costa Rica. The tour begins with a pickup from your San José hotel around 7:00 AM, to drive to Alajuela Province. Where you will have the opportunity to see the park Alajuela and monument of our national hero Juan Santamaria. Continue the route we will ascend the Poás Volcano along a road dotted with fern, flower and farms. At the volcano you can explore segments of the park with a light hike and peer into the biggest geyser kind crater of the world. You’ll also visit the beautiful Botos Lagoon and learn about the various ecosystems that are present within the region. Other stop is in the town of Grecia, which was once named the cleanest town in Latin America and is home to one of the only churches in Central America made entirely of steel. The final destination is the town of Sarchí, a cradle of Costa Rican artistry. The town is filled with small craft stores and family-operated woodworking factories. Some of the best-known crafts include wooden bowls, wooden and leather rocking chairs, and carretas—elaborately painted oxcarts that in older times carried coffee to the ports along the Pacific coast.
