As you awake each morning you will enjoy the view of the Poás Volcano from your Peace Lodge balcony. This tour offers you a much closer experience. 

Your informative guide will transport you to Poás, one of the four active volcanoes in Costa Rica, and impart to you the knowledge of the creation of Costa Rica via these sleeping giants. The crystal blue sulfur pools will amaze and enthrall you as you view this incredible landscape. Once you’vehad your fill of the beauty that is Poás, you will head to another of Costa Rica’s trademarks: an authentic coffee plantation. As one of the oldest hydro-powered wet mills in Costa Rica, this third generation coffee plantation has been voted the bestcoffee in the region. In fact, 90% of its high quality coffee is sent directly to Starbucks. 

You’ll learn how coffee is grown,picked, milled and ground. Wemay even find a basket for you to pick a few beans, or "cherries" as the locals call them. Find out first hand, or "cup", why Costa Rican coffee is so famous. And if you don’t get filled up on the coffee, you’ll return in time for lunch at Waterfall Gardens.
