Hike to the base of the Waterfall – Self-guided tour is all the way to the bottom of the most impressive waterfall in Costa Rica and Second to None in Beauty and Splendor. The waterfall has a natural setting no person ever could have designed it; it throws itself 90 meter into an old extinct volcanic crater. First 500 meter of the trail is flat and has several fantastic lookouts; second part is also 500 meters with steps with high impact. People with heart conditions or any other medical condition, older people, pregnant women, etc. should not go down. For the rest of the people they need to take their time coming back up. The steps are made of concrete including the railings and it has several sitting areas, views are incredible.

While hiking down enjoy the rock formations of this ancient volcanic crater, its colors and feel the special chemical composition of the water.

Hiking to Poas
Sorry….but we cannot offer this tour anymore. We are notified by the Poás Park manager that we are not allowed to come to the edge of the crater anymore…(see picture below). It is too dangerous…?? No risk no fun! Well in that case we do not want to walk for seven hours… But we are working on an alternative tour….please stay tuned…thanks for your interest.

This hike is a special one. Will take 4 hours up and 3 hours down, total time around 8 hours including a 30 minutes rest at the top. We only can do this under certain circumstances. Only with the right people, at the right time, with the right weather conditions etc… Once on the move there is no turning point!

In the end we offer this tour only a few times a year. But if you will make this tour you will never forget it.
