Irazu Volcano National Park, Province of Cartago
(3.9/5 based on 380+ 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.

  • Great place, little souvenir shop with a few hot beverages and lots of trinkets, they take credit cards. Parking space, Bathrooms, Full accesible bathroom. Picnic areas. Really cold: bring a good sweater and check for the weather online before coming.
  • Awesome sightseeing, natural experience of a Volcano, over 3000 meters above sea level. Parking lot, places to walk around
  • This is such a huge place. It has a lot of great photo opportunities too. I had never visited Costa Rica before this past summer and I went here I think on my first or second day after arriving. There's some really breathtaking views I thought. I hope you have a good camera because you'll want it with you.
  • Is just impresive to realize the huge biodiversity that is in one single place the diferent types of animals an plant so as ecossystems you need to see it to believe it.
  • Very nice views and experience.
