Overview

Irazú Volcano Half-Day will allow you to get to know one of the most impressive volcanoes in the world just one hour from San Jose, this beautiful volcano is the highest in Costa Rica, and the second highest point.

Volcano:

Irazú Volcano half-day,  is situated in the Cordillera Central just a few kilometers from Cartago, and it is a relatively short and pleasant drive from the Capital city of San Jose.

The trip begins by ascending the breathtaking summit of the Irazu Volcano, passing all types and forms of vegetation, from coffee plantations, to ferns, depending on the elevation. 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.

It should be mentioned, that on a clear day you can actually see both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans!

After an exciting tour of the volcano, we will descend to the historical city of Cartago. We will stop at the Virgin of the Angels Basilica – a famous peregrination site for many believers, some of which travel for days or even weeks on foot, in a pilgrimage of faith, to the site. The Basilica has large vaulted ceilings and exquisite examples of stained glass windows, a rich displays of carvings, statues and other pieces of art.

Our guide will explain step by step the history of our pilgrimage and we will also have a visit to the holy water, where you can drink the water, wash your face and hands if you wish.

We invite you to visit our One Day  tours from San Jose.

Amazing half-day trip

Even though it was raining in the morning and very cloudy, Jean (the BEST guide) and I were lucky enough to see the beautiful kraters and other vulcanos. After that Jean took me to Cartago to see the beautiful church and in between everything we had some good conversations! I had a blast! Muchos gracias Jean!

Dress warm

A very interesting location. Like a lunar landscape. What a difference from the rainforest environment I was in yesterday. When they tell you to dress warmly, heed the advice. It was 6 degrees at the crater viewing spots. And go early. The clouds can roll in quickly and completely obstruct any views of the craters. My guide was fantastic, too. Very patient and informative.

Enfin un Volcan

Super belle journée avec notre guide Antonio. Nous étions seulement 4 personnes et notre guide a pris le temps de nous faire un tour de ville avec les explications très intéressantes . Nous avons eu la chance pendant quelques minutes de voir le volcan et wowww quelle beauté nous sommes resté environ 1:30 sur le volcan et nous avons jamais senti de pression pour qu’on se dépêche ....par la suite ville de Cartago l’église . Tout était parfait nous sommes parti à 8:00 am et de retour à 14h. Merci Antonio!

Buen viaje a Costa Rica

Compre este tour directamente en la pagina del operador, me sorprendió la rapidez con la que me contactaron, quizá uno o dos minutos después de enviar la solicitud. Fui con un grupo relativamente pequeño de 3 personas, los tiempos de espera entre cada hotel no fueron rápidos pero tampoco mucho tiempo, en total yo calculo que un promedio de 5 minutos por hotel (el tiempo depende de cada cliente, no digo que sea culpa del operador). Mi visita fue rápida a Costa Rica, tuve solamente un fin de semana para conocer tortuguero y el lunes por la mañana me decidí a realizar este tour, la verdad es muy conveniente si quieres viajar por la tarde, ya que te recogen en el hotel, haces el tour y te dejan en el aeropuerto. En cuanto al clima, muy bonito todo, por un instante pensé que no podría ver el cráter principal del volcán pero en cuestión de 5 minutos se despejó totalmente, por lo que creo que tuve suerte, en cuanto al servicio y todo lo demás volvería a contratar esta compañía por el servicio tan puntual y eficiente que ofrece.

Awesome tour

The visit to the Irazu Volcano was impressive. We were able to see the three craters. The morning was cloudy and foggy, but we were lucky enough that the fog had lifted for our time there was perfect timing and covered the whole area as we were ready to depart. The earlier you arrive the better. On the way back to San Jose we stopped at the Basilica de Los Angeles and it was beautiful and impressive. Our guide and driver Fernando Solar was excellent, professional and knowledgeable.

Cool volcano craters. Long mini bus ride back

The tour is essentially the following: Pickup from your hotel. I received an email the day before saying that I would be picked up at 625am. In the morning the company had contacted my hotel to let me know that they'd be 20 mins late. That's ok but it was probably closer to being 40 mins late. Bus will pick up remaining passengers from their hotel. Tour guide speaks both Spanish and English. My guide would speak in Spanish and then repeat in English or vice versa. Stop 1 is at a supermarket. There are restrooms. Stop 2 is at the Irazo national Park where you can see the volcano craters. The tour guide will point out things on the way. KEEP IN MIND the green lake you see in the images is no longer there due to a landslide 3 months ago. At least that's what the guide told me. Stop 3 is at the church where you have about 10 mins to take a picture. Not sure if you can normally enter but my group couldn't on the day. Turns out my tour group was a split between 2 different tours that begin the same. Those on the full day tour will continue on with the tour guide and the others will be placed on a different mini bus back to San Jose. The traffic will be horrible. My driver only spoke Spanish and had decided to drop off the passenger furthest away first which was on the other side of the airport near Alajuela. I really wish the driver had coordinated the drop offs better as they had already driven close to my hotel in San Jose as well as that of another passenger. Overall I thought it was cool to see the volcano craters but I feel like I mostly paid for a really long mini bus trip. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions. If you do decide to go be sure to check the weather as a cloudy day could ruin the views you see at the craters.

A nice tour, can be done before your evening flight

A very nice tour. Our guide was friendly, and on time. It is really nice up there on the volcano. The airport drop off was also very convenient.
