Dream vacation for volcano lovers!
Adventurers may try ’World of Volcanoes Tour’ within 11 days of a geographic exploration and interesting trip. Costa Rica has a lot of volcanoes, some are active even today.The conical Volcan Arenal is the youngest stratovolcano in Costa Rica and one of its most active. Its lava flows and activity have been constant, and on virtually any day you can see smoking cinder blocks tumbling down the steep slope from the crater, or at night watch a fiery cascade of lava spewing from the crater. Volcano Poas National Park is one of the most visited in Costa Rica, because of its proximity to San Jose and because of the luxuriant forest that surrounds the two craters.
Its deep blue waters contrast with the dense tropical forest, making it the perfect spot for the stereotypical Indian sacrifice -- throwing a young maiden into the mouth of a crater or a lagoon.
The volcano has had a long history of eruptions, going back as much as 11 million years. Its geyser-like eruptions of muddy water and steam, have given it the reputation as the world’s largest geyser.Perhaps the ’Fun, Leisure and Beach’ tour is the most comprehensive one of the four tours. Though its main purpose is recreation and relaxing, also covers cultural and geographical explorations and includes the visiting of Poas, La Paz Waterfall, Arenal, Monteverde, Tamarindo Beach as well.
Fishing, surfing, boating, sightseeing, shopping, excellent dining, jungle tours, canopy tours, horseback riding, and nightlife, are just a few of the many things to do on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. So it is worth taking the opportunity of reaching places where no one else walked before, in addition, at a pretty low price.
