Irazu Volcano, Orosi Valley and Lankester
From US$107.00
Without the convenience of a guided tour, you’re likely to miss the beautiful Irazu Volcano with its lagoon-filled summit and the surrounding historical towns of Orosi and Cartago. A guided tour from San Jose eliminates the hassle of slow public transportation and shows you the top sites in the area in just one day, plus provides useful information from your guide throughout.
What to Expect
Begin your tour with pickup from your San Jose hotel. Travel in an air-conditioned van through scenic countryside en route to your first destination at Cartago, situated at the base of Irazu Volcano. Upon arrival, tour the Basilica of Los Angeles, an important pilgrimage destination famous for its shrine to Black Madonna.

Next, drive up Irazu Volcano to admire its gray slopes and crater lagoon at close range. Descend on the other side into the quiet town of Orosi, where a city walking tour highlights the colonial architecture, natural surroundings, and one of the oldest churches in Costa Rica. Eat lunch at a local restaurant (included).

Your last stop is at the Lankester Botanical Gardens. Your guide tells you about the tropical orchids that make the gardens popular.

Tour concludes with drop-off at your San Jose hotel.

A nice one day trip around San Jose

Good day trip to finish our 2 weeks in Costa Rica. Overall trip was good and as expected. The lunch was good and in a very beautiful place, with (maybe we were lucky?) some tucans flying around.

Diverse program, worth the money!

I only waited for about 10, 15 minutes for the pick-up, wich I think is no problem. You get to see a lot in one day: churches, a vulcano, a botanic garden and a lot of the diverse surroundings. Lunch was at a beautiful outside...More
