Great Day at Poas Volcano

Today we headed up into the higher elevations to see Poas Vocano. Although we were in the clouds at well over 8,000 ft., we were fortunate to have some sun and an amazingly clear view of the main crater which is more than a mile across. (It reportedly is the second largest in the world.) From the main crater we hiked to Botos Lake, which formed in one of the volcano’s extinct craters. Our guide Javier pointed out the interesting flora in the area of the volcano. The leaves of one of the plants were almost the size of Lauren and Amber!
