Poás Volcano National Park

Located about 1½ hours from San Jose the main crater supplies guests with a spectacular view. At almost a mile in diameter (1.6 km), the crater rain-fed sulfuric pool still bubbles and emits smoke into the air, reminding you of its imposing activity. Although the last major eruption was in 1910, visitors can still see geysers explode into the air up to 820 ft. (250 m) high. There are also lots of different bird species and animals to see.

Irazú National Park

There are several craters, two of which are the main attractions. The larger of the two delves 900 feet (275 m) deep, as steam rises up into the air. The smaller crater, Diego de la Haya, dips below the surface 300 ft (91 m) as its mineral-rich lake astonishingly transforms its color from emerald-green to crimson-red.
