The Poas Volcano is Active Today!
Today February 26, 2014 the Poas Volcano located in Costa Rica’s central valley is erupting. It is spewing hot water, steam, and mud 1,000 feet into the air.
The park is open to visitors who get a real thrill to see this spectacular site. There is a warning sign telling the visitors not to get close to the fence at the over look (where visitors usually stand to have photos taken.)
If the park rangers feel it is not safe to come into the National Park, then the ranger at the entrance gate tells visitors the park is closed.
The Poas Volcano National Park is the most visited tourist attraction in the central valley and the reason because it is the largest geyser in the world- one mile in diameter.
Several small restaurants in the area offer great Costa Rica Style meals. Fredda Fresas is my favorite. Also I really like Chubasco Both offer Costa Rica cooking with fresh local ingredients.
