Irazu Volcano is situated within the Central Mountain Range, just a few kilometers from Cartago, and it is a relatively short and pleasant drive away from the capital city of San Jose. The trip leads up to a spectacular view of the massive crater, which is home to a lagoon with a mystical green hue surrounded by jagged rocks. The moonlike landscape is breathtaking and the air is pristine.
This excursion offers the opportunity to visit the City of Cartago and its Basilica of Los 'ngeles. You'll also have a chance to discover the highest volcano in Costa Rica (at 11,000 feet above sea level) with its amazing resemblance to the moon's surface.
