One of Costa Rica’s main attractions is it’s volcanoes. Depending on which volcanologist you talk to there are over 100 domaint volcanos and six or seven active volcanoes.
These volcanos are an excellent tourist attraction some you can walk up or even drive to the peak and look down into the crater where gases are being emitted.
If we had to pick of all the volcanos in Costa Rica we would say our favorite without question is the Turrialba Volcano. Not only is it the most scenic but its recent activity has made it a true adventure to arrive. One of the areas is called the burnt forest where recent activity has left all the trees charred. If you want to venture to the top of the volcano you will need to go with a guide and hike two hours to the crater. Here you can see the entire caribbean coastline of Costa Rica.
If you visit Costa Rica you most certainly have to make an effort to visit one of the volcanos. It can be a hit or miss due to cloud coverage but when it is clear its always one of the most memorable experiences you can have in Costa Rica.
