The Irazú Volcano is 3432m tall, making it the tallest volcano in the country. Standing on the summit on a clear day, you can see both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans in one unforgettable panorama.
Minerals from volcanic eruptions have made the soil surrounding the volcano exceptionally rich, feeding robust flora. Adventurous souls can connect with nature by exploring the loop hiking trail, winding around the volcano and between its numerous craters.
For many, the highlight of the day is the view of Diego de la Haya—a particularly photogenic crater that contains a bright green volcanic lake.
