Combo Tour: Poás Volcano National Park / Doka Coffee Tour / La Paz Waterfall Garden

Why settle for one adventure when you can go on three? Explore Costa Rica's central valley in beautiful Alajuela. You'll be out all day on this 10 hour adventure which takes you to Poás Volcano National Park, Doka Coffee Estate, and La Paz Waterfall Garden. Outdoor adventure, a treat for the palate, and the beauty of nature — this tour has it all.

Get ready to head from one amazing activity to the next throughout Alajuela, Costa Rica. Begin your day with a delightful breakfast at the Doka Coffee Estate where you'll also enjoy an educational tour of this fully functioning coffee plantation. Learn how coffee goes from bean to brew as you observe every step of the production process — cultivating, harvesting, roasting, and (of course) savoring the perfect blend.

Next, you'll be making your way to Poás Volcano National Park* — you may need to put a sweater on, because the higher elevation means it's about to get cooler. The 2,708 meter (8,885 ft) Poás Volcano is a stratovolcano with a crater that is 320 meters (1,050 feet) deep.

Though you'll be on the lookout for special park attractions, as your elevation increases, you're taking the scenic route by default — passing foliage, flowers, farm landscapes, and more.

The time you'll spend at Poás Volcano National Park is broken down accordingly:

  • 10 minutes walking to the main crater viewpoint.
  • 20 minutes exploring the crater viewpoint with sulphur fumaroles, hiking past Botos Lagoon, and learning about the areas ecosystems.
  • A 10 minute walk to exit the park.

When Poás Volcano ends, the next adventure begins, and that's La Paz Waterfall Gardens. No doubt your previous trek will mean you've worked up an appetite — good thing lunch is your first activity at this new destination. Enjoy a sumptuous buffet of Costa Rican dishes; don't worry, you'll be working that meal off soon enough!

In the midst of a luscious jungle, La Paz Waterfall gardens offers you you'll find monkeys, butterflies, tropical birds, rivers, waterfalls and even dedicated exhibits! Head to the 'Serpentarium' or 'Frog Pond' to get your reptile and amphibian fix. Step into the 'Aviary' where you'll have no difficulty doing birdwatching. Become entranced by delicate and colourful wings in the 'Hummingbird Garden' or the world's largest 'Butterfly Observatory.' Indulge your wild side at the 'Jungle Cats Exhibit.' End your day with an amazing adventure discovering the natural world.
