A friend and I made the day trip from Heredia to Vúlcan Poas (Poas Volcano) this weekend. The bus ride was pretty short, maybe an hour at most including the obligatory reststop at the choosen roadside stand. (I wonder how they choose those stops… friends of friends, relatives?)
We actually didn´t see anything at all of note because a giant cloud had descended on the top, rendering our trip completely pointless. The trails were less than exciting, consisting of short paved loops through forest that left even my young knees in pain. We covered the whole park in about an hour, leaving us with with two more hours to kill until the bus left again. So yeah, that was about it. If you go, check the weather first and figure out a way to get there earlier than the 8:30 bus, that way you can see something besides thick fog.Filed under Christin Chitty, Costa Rica, Study Abroad | Comments (2)
