La Paz Waterfall Gardens
The most visited privately owned ecological attraction in Costa Rica with accessible trails to the most famous waterfalls and rescued wildlife preserve with over 100 species of animals. The Gardens provide an amazing opportunity to view and photograph animals that are challenging to view in the wild.
Poás volcano is a powerful symbol of the geothermal forces that formed Costa Rica. When the mist and clouds part it is possible to see the sulfuric, bubbling, green rain fed lake at the bottom, surrounded by smoke and steam
rising from fumaroles. The crater is 1,050 feet (320 meters) deep. At almost a mile (1.6 km) across it's also the largest active crater in the world.
