Hey if you have 2 1/2 or 3 hours to kill in San Jose on your way to or from visiting us at Iguana Lodge, you should take a trip to the Poas Volcano. It is really worth the visit. The drive is lovely climbing up thought first the coffee plantations, then the fern plantations, and then the strawberry and dairy farms and finally into the cloud forest that reminds me of Jurassic park. Be patient if you can’t see the crater. The clouds often clear and voila!
