Poas Volcano

The Poás is a volcano that rises to 2,708 meters of altitude, since 1989 it has notably increased the emission of gases, causing acid rain phenomena that have damaged the flora in some sectors of the park and agricultural plantations surrounding the area.

At the top there are two craters, the main one 1.5 km in diameter and 300 deep, which is considered one of the largest in the world. At present, the volcano emits a large quantity of gases and water vapor from the different fumaroles that are located in the inner cone of the crater.

Access to the edge of its crater is enabled, and is easily accessible.
