From San José
Experience driving up into the cloud forest of an active volcano and having a panoramic view of the spectacular Turrialba Valley.
- The Turrialba Volcano is located in the Central Mountain Range of Costa Rica and reaches an altitude of 10,955 feet. It is one of the five active volcanoes in the country. There are a total of 109 volcanoes in Costa Rica.
- To start the tour to the Turrialba Volcano, we head north in a 4-wheel drive vehicle. During the 1 hour and 45 minute drive to the crater, you will be amazed at the views of the Turrialba Valley and by the landscape as we get closer to the top. You will be leaving the tropical jungle behind and climbing into the beautiful high-elevation cloud forest and beyond that to the páramo (summit vegetation). As you climb into the clouds, you will feel like you are leaving Costa Rica behind as the temperature gets colder and the vegetation changes dramatically.
- This truly is the best way to see the most spectacular views of the Turrialba Valley which on a clear day is all the way to the Caribbean coast.
***Recommended Clothing: Hiking boots or tennis shoes, Short or long pants, Sweater, Rain-jacket or poncho, Sun block, and a Hat. Bring extra clothes and towel for the end of the tour.
