Stories, information and comments from Irazu Volcano climbers
Story by Jefry from Heredia, Costa Rica, submitted on 15/07/2015
Painfull climb, as far as you go up, you feel more cold, wind, fog and lack of air.

In the way there are little beatiful towns and many restaurants and shops with incredibles views and souvenirs.

On the top you can pay to get in the Irazu Volcano National Park, witch has an amazing view of all central valley of Costa Rica and in a clear day you can see from here both oceans (Atlantic and Pacific)
