Paos or La Paz

If I have only one day in San Jose, Costa rica, and I have to chose, which one? Paos Volcano or La Paz waterfall gardens?

Also how long is Doka estate coffee tour?

Of course, you can do these. Individually if you want but a lot of people do alll 3 of these as a full day combo tour since they are all in the same general area. If you do them as a combo your time at each place is more prescribed but still adequate. If you select just 1 or 2, you will be able to spend more time at each one. Doka has tours that take the better part of a full day if you really want to immerse yourself in that but IMHO that is really overkill. One final the thing, if these are the only things you're planning to do while you're in the SJ area, then I recommend you stay in the Alajuela area if you haven't planned to do that already (and this is coming from the San Jose "expert").

Ditto to what Prolijo said, but keep in mind that you need to be at Poas very early--it's almost always clouded over by 10:00 am (no guarantees before 10:00 am, can be clouded over all day).

Thank you for the replies. This is our plan: We will be driving out of Arenal. on the day I check out (on 09/22) of Arenal Lodge, we will drive to Doka estate, next day(09/23) Paos or La Paz and then the following early morning (09/24) fly out of San Jose.

Will look into Alajuela.
