Your breath-taking, adventure begins with a pickup from your hotel and a relaxing private drive through the wonderful Costa Rican countryside on an air-conditioned transportation and recent model deluxe vehicle or mini bus. You will be heading to the top of the Central Volcanic Mountain Range, Barva Sector, about 90 minutes’ drive from San Jose.
Barva Volcano is the highest part of Braulio Carrillo National Park standing almost 10,000 feet above sea level. On the eastern side of the mountain it has a lake in what was the volcanic crater, called “Laguna de Barva”, and in the western side it has three hills on the top which are called “Las Tres Marías”.
Barva Volcano is an excellent place to explore the majestic beauty of the Costa Rican landscape. The area around the mountain features dozens of hiking trails of varying difficulty. Stag Horn Path, which winds around the base of the volcano, offers incredible views of the Barva Lagoon, the largest caldera in Braulio Carrillo National Park. This route leads to the Copey Lagoon Trail, which also boasts remarkable views of the Central Valley.
Barva Volcano is one of Costa Rica’s most impressive natural wonders, and the memories of a trip to this mighty mountain are sure to last a lifetime.
Trekking at Barva Volcano will last about 3-4 hours depending on your physical conditions. However, our tour guide will go on your pace in order to have a great day. After the Trekking, lunch is included in a typical restaurant near the national park.
