4/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web
Visit Irazu Volcano National Park and drive to the top of Costa Rica’s tallest active volcano. The summit allows views of the volcano’s main crater, with views of the surrounding mountainous landscape. Visit the secondary crater, Diego de la Haya, to view its mineral-rich lake. The areas around the crater are barren, giving visitors the feeling of being in an alien landscape. With more than 2,023 hectares (5,000 acres) in the national park, it is home to montane forests and animal life including armadillos, owls, foxes, and a variety of birds. Put Irazu Volcano National Park and other Ujarras attractions into our Ujarras vacation builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

There's some really breathtaking views I thought. I hope you have a good camera because you'll want it with you.
