Flag of Costa Rica  , Province of Alajuela,
Thursday, April 22, 2010

Started the first day off on our trip with a "light" day trip to Poas
Volcano. Jumped on a bus at 9:15am from the Alajuela bus terminal for
about 2400 colones (roundtrip). Bus took about 1.5 hours to get up to
the park entrance, including a 20 min stop, bathroom break, at a road
side store/restaurant. The National Park entrance fee was $10 USD for
visitors, non-locals. The volcano was cool, still active. No lava but
lots of smoke and fumes, smell of sulphur was strong. Wind shifted a
bit and everyone started coughing a bit. After some pictures and sight
seeing, took a path to the nearby lake. Gorgeous views, couldn't
actually get down to the lake. Walked back to the parking lot and
caught the bus back to Alajuela which left the park at 2:00pm, ride
back was about 45 mins with no stops.
Had a decent meal at a soda
near the bus station. Solid meal, then went back to the hostel to relax
and enjoy some Imperial lager (Costa Rican beer). Off to either La
Fortuna or Tortuguero, need to decide...
