Meet your guide at your centrally located accommodation in La Fortuna for a full-day excursion to Juan Castro Blanco National Park. Hop into your air-conditioned minivan with onboard Wi-Fi and drive through the plains of San Carlos until you reach the park, which stands 7,217 feet (2,200 meters) above sea level.

Lace up your boots and begin your hike to the Pozo Verde Lagoon, located inside the crater of a dormant volcano. Walk through the cloud forest at a comfortable pace determined by your group along a 3-mile (5-km) trail, winding past ancient trees, lines of leaf cutter ants, and freshwater streams in a primary growth forest. Keep your eyes peeled for sightings of wild animals in their natural habitat, such as the brightly colored Resplendent Quetzal common to the area.

At the end of the hike, refuel with a typical Costa Rican lunch and cloud forest coffee before your guide brings you back to your hotel.

A “private tour” with Gabriel & co.
Jacob_C
, Apr. 2022
Gabriel gave us an excellent tour of the Juan Castro Blanco National Park. We were the only two who signed up, so we got a “private” tour with Gabriel, our driver, and a guide-in-training. They did an excellent job spotting wildlife, though we narrowly missed seeing the elusive quetzal. 10/10 recommend!!

We lucked out on our trip with...

We lucked out on our trip with beautiful weather... unfortunately that meant no clouds, but hey! The hike was still gorgeous. Our guide was very friendly and very diligent in trying to find a quetzal bird for us, and while we weren't so lucky with that, it was still a well paced hike. Guide was very accommodating in terms of speed, where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see, our goal for the tour, etc. Lunch afterwards was delicious, and the restaurant staff are very sweet. While it was a bit expensive for a day trip, it was a good tour. Bummed at the lack of clouds, but I wouldn't harm the rating of the tour because of too good of weather. The staff and the structure was great.
