Grab this opportunity to visit to some of the most spectacular lagoons in Costa Rica during a one-day tour. Leave La Fortuna at around 7:30 am and drive for 1.5 hours through the plains of San Carlos, located on the outskirts of Juan Castro Blanco National Park, until you reach the Hule Lagoon. On arrival, prepare for your hike to the volcanic lagoons. Start your journey through the pastures that border the forest of the volcanic caldera where the Hule Lagoon is located.

Popularly referred to as the Hule Lagoon, this beautiful lagoon is spread over an area of 55 hectares (136 acres) and is located at the base of the Cerro Congo Volcano, 11 km (6.83 miles) away from the famous Poas Volcano. This area is renowned for its excellent trekking trails due to the variety of sceneries and terrain it offers, ranging from clay to dirt, volcanic rocks and grasslands.

Travel through a rainforest during your descent. Enjoy incredible views of primary and secondary lagoons along your way. Along the 8 km (5 miles) circuit trail, you will visit 2 of the 3 most important lagoons of the area, ranging from 15 to 55 hectares in surface area.

After this amazing and intense 3-4 hour hike, you will arrive at the main observation point, where you can savor a delicious, traditional Costa Rican lunch.
