    What to Expect
    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.
