FOUR IN ONE:
VOLCANO POAS-LA PAZ WATERFALL-SELVE VERDE-SARAPIQUI RIVER RIDE
This is one of the best one-day tours available in Costa Rica. It has to be considered a no stress tour, because there is very little walking required and yet you will see some of the most beautiful sights this country has to offer. Our stopping points are all close together, which allows for plenty of low stress exercise.
Our first stop will be for breakfast and then we move on to the Volcano Poas. We will be parked about a 5 minuet walk from a point that allows you to look into the creater which is .9 of a mile across. At the present this volcano is considered active due to the gases and vapor it is emitting.
Next stop is La Paz waterfalls which is located on the north side of the Volcano and near the foothills. Our lunch stop will be at Selve Verde Lodge, which is located in a dense Jungle setting.
After our lunch you will have free time to walk their trails in search of poison dart frog and other birds and animals. Later aboard a covered, boat we will move down the Sarapiqui River on the look out for crocodiles, various birds, monkeys, three toed sloth and any other animals in the area. This boat ride is about 11/2; to I 3/4 of an hour.
Along the way we will pass through the heart of the Braulio Carrillo National Park.
