With an altitude of 3.432 m, the Irazú is the highest active volcano in Costa Rica. On clear days it is possible to see both the Pacific ocean and the Caribbean sea from its summit.
Very impressive is the view into the main crater with its vivid green lake, its steep slopes made of volcanic stones and ash.
Irazú is a two hour drive from San José, passing through the old capital Cartago. From here passing fruit and vegetable plantations a good paved road leads you to the volcano crater.
