You never know if you're going to get to see a view of the volcano or not but we took the chance and were really glad we did. Our tour guide getting us there was amazing and told us lots about the volcano, surrounding region...More

Great experience to see the volcano that recently was active but we were allowed to stay and enjoy the scenery and appreciate nature in a very limited time, also required us to wear protective helmets.

The Poas Volcano is very beautiful. While we were there the 'fog' came in and left just a few minutes later and gave us a great view deep into the crater. Highly recommend!

It's an amazing experience.Involve it in a progrmme tour with other attractions to visit other places too.There is nothing to do or visit close and the pointview is for 20 minutes. The view is just a miracle of natur.Feeling the power of the earth.

We booked the 11:00 am tickets but ended up going with the 10:40 am group. Glad we did because visibility was awesome! Rent a car if possible, as viewing time is only 20 minutes - and then there's nothing else to do.

First off, make sure to make a reservation, as you will not be admitted without one. Also be sure to bring your passport (of a photocopy of it). The cost is $15 per person. You wait in a reception area, and they run an instruction...More

It's necessary to buy the tickets ahead of time. You are only given 20 minutes at the crater and visibility is usually poor. All of the other trails are closed to the public now, so you pay $4 for parking and $15 to enter and...More

Poas was simply majestic for my group. When we arrived at the summit (after donning our mandatory hard hats), we saw nothing but thick cloud obscuring the peak and surroundings. Then, ten minutes later, the fog lifted, and we saw the gargantuan crater of the...More

You would need to contact the sightseeing tour company that you booked with directly for pickup.
