Join this tour to see the peaks of Irazu Volcano and memorable landmarks in the Orosi Valley. Your journey concludes with a relaxing dip in some volcanic hot springs.

As you make your way down the South Panamerican Highway, you'll have an incredible view of the colorful landscape. Soil that surrounds the Irazu Volcano is especially fertile, due to a volcanic eruption that occurred in 1963. Irazu is still technically active but hasn’t had significant activity since the 1990s.

During the first leg of the tour, you’ll ascend the side of the volcano. When you reach the top, you’ll get to admire the volcano’s two peaks. On a clear day, you can also see the ocean in the distance.

The tour continues to the colonial city of Cartago, where you’ll stop to see La Basilica de Nuestra Señora de los Angeles (Basilica of Our Lady of the Angels). Pilgrims come here to pay homage to a statue of the Virgin Mary nicknamed “La Negrita.” According to legend, this statue miraculously appeared in the 17th century. Locals built the basilica in the spot where a native girl first discovered La Negrita.

This tour continues to La Hacienda Orosi to experience the soothing warmth of the volcanically heated water. Orosi’s clear water has filtered through many layers of earth and is chock full of volcanic minerals.
