En route to Irazú Volcano National Park you will stop in Cartago, Costa Rica's former capital city, where you will visit the ruins of a church and the Basilica of Our Lady of the Angels. Continuing to Irazú Volcano National Park through the valley of Cartago, you can enjoy scenic views of crop land and dairy pastures.

As a result of its last major series of eruptions (1963-65), Irazú presents an impressively bleak and barren landscape and two deep craters, one of which still contains active fumaroles. The stunted vegetation consists of many plant species unique to this highland habitat (11,000 ft. above sea level).

On our way back to San José, we will stop for lunch (not included in tour price) at the Linda Vista Restaurant. Approximate driving times, San José-Cartago: 35 minutes; Cartago-Irazú: 1 hour; Irazú-San José, 90 minutes. Operated by Expediciones Tropicales.
