Bring as little as possible. They do laundry here. Long pants and long sleeves are best. Daytime temps usually in the 70's, nighttime usually in the 60's. Afternoon rain common.
Bring comfy walking shoes or boots. Rain poncho. Bring what you will need there are no stores nearby. You will need a lot of mosquito repellent. Bring lots of film or memory. Don't forget to bring your binoculars or your bird books.. You will need them here.

Best vulcano

by alex240975

If you only have time for visiting one vulcano choose Turrialba. The reasons? Here they are:

1. Entrance to the National Park is (still) free
2. You can walk around the caldera, directly at its edge through sulfur steams,... (not possible at Poas, Irazu)
3. There are (up to now) only little tourists
4. The way there may be a little bit bumpy (4WD recommended) but leads you through a picturesque rural area

Just check the weather - like for all the other volcanoes - it can be really cloudy up there.

To get there follow the signs to the volcano from the town of Turrialba.

"It's cold up here."

The mountains - they're beautiful, tranquil, dramatic, picturesque and BORING! Aside from hiking/horseback riding there's absolutely nothing to do up here (we slept alot). I have a theory though; I think, in order to alleviate the bordom you'll have to bring your own entertainment - Next time I go to mountains I'm taking a group of friends to entertain me, if it's still boring, at least I can blame them.

Tranquility

"Private nature reserve"

Fields of sugar cane and coffee are spread out along the landscape in this area.
From Turrialba it is a 1.7 miles bumpy ride, up a dirt road to the mountain retreat of Rancho
Naturalista.
Irazu and Turrialba volcanoes dominate the skyline.
Tropical forest is only steps away from the lodge.
