We couldn't drive up to the volcano today because it has been closed for about a year due to volcanic activity. We were told it may open in the next couple of months. Be sure to check whether it is open to save yourself a...More
A short ride from downtown San Jose, highly recommended going in the morning to avoid getting a cloudy view. Admission is based by vehicle. There are a few hiking trails (moderately easy to easy) that we went on, took us a good 2-3 hours!

The park is closed to visitors due to an eruption last year which damaged the infrastructure around the volcano. We were with a bird watching group and the security guard gave us permission to walk along one of the lower paths for 45 minutes only,...More

I’m sorry, I wasn’t aware that the park had been closed since April 2017 due to volcanic activities (according to their Facebook page) So unfortunately they are still closed until further notice. I looked into Costa Rica’s local news and seems like there is no specific date to reopen yet. I would suggest to giving the visitor center a call to see if they have updated information: 2482-2424. Hopefully they’ll reopen soon!
