Today you and I are going to explore Poas Volcano National Park which is located in the upper part of the Central Volcanic Mountain Range. First, we are going to visit a coffee plantation where you will learn about the growing cycle, its flowers, and fruits. Step by step our guide will guide us through the plantation to show us the plants and how to pick up the coffee beans. Then, the tour continues through the plantation to the Coffee Mill processing facility. Here, our guide will explain to us how to measure the coffee, how much money the coffee pickers make why some beans float and others sink, and so on. Finally, we will see how a machine called “choncadora” peels the coffee beans and eventually, we put the beans into large ovens to dry them out. The last step is to put the coffee beans into sacs for export.
After the coffee adventure. We continue the mesmerizing journey to Poas Volcano, considered one of the most stunning volcanic craters in the country. Poas Volcano offers breathtaking landscapes with lush surroundings. Our guides will share insights into the volcano’s history and geology. Poás is an active stratovolcano with one of the world’s largest volcanic craters. The main crater is over a kilometer in diameter and 300 meters (1,000 feet) deep. It is filled with a stunning turquoise-colored acidic lake. Due to its high elevation (over 2,700 meters or 8,800 feet), the weather at Poás Volcano can be cool and misty. A well-maintained trail leads to “Botos Lagoon” where you can see cloud forest, providing habitat for a variety of plant and animal species.
