As you travel up to the Irazu Volcano, a noticeable difference in temperature and vegetation can be quickly perceived.
We will visit the highest volcano in Costa Rica (3432 MASL or 11000 FASL), whose last eruptive phase happened between 1963 and 1965 spreading strong gas and ash emissions that were perceived all around the country.
After the volcano visit, we will descend to Cartago city (former Costa Rican capital which was established in 1563 by the conquistador Juan Vázquez de Coronado) and we’ll make a stop at the Basílica de La Virgen de Los Angeles (Catholic Cathedral), which is a place of gathering for many faithful religious people (a tradition since 1635).
On a 2 hour and 45 minute trip from the hotel, we will get to know this picturesque area in the central valley to visite the national park of this impressive 5 crater volcano and to learn about our country history at the beginning of the colonial period, as well as the Costa Rican culture that still prevails today.
