Full description
Popularly referred to as the Hule Lagoon, this 55 hectares (136 acres) diameter beautiful lagoon is located at the base of the Cerro Congo Volcano, 11 km (6.83 miles) from the famous Poas Volcano. This area is renowned for its excellent trekking trails due to the variety of scenery and terrain, from clay, to dirt, volcanic rock, and grasslands in a rainforest at 800 m above sea level.

Depart from La Fortuna around 7:30 am, to drive 1.5 hours through the plains of San Carlos, on the outskirts of the Juan Castro Blanco National Park, until you reach the Hule Lagoon. On arrival, prepare for an expedition to the volcanic lagoons and begin a hike through the pastures that border the forest of the volcanic caldera of the Hule Lagoon. During the descent, head into the exceptional rainforest of the area where you will enjoy incredible views of the primary and secondary lagoons. Along the 8 km (5 miles) circuit trail, visit 2 of the 3 most important lagoons of the area, from 15 to 55 hectares in diameter.

After this amazing and intense 3-4 hour hike, arrive at the main observation point, where you will savor a delicious traditional Costa Rican lunch.
