Alajuela Province, Costa Rica

I’m excited to join fellow blogger Fiona Ryan's A-Z Guidebook Travel Linkup over at Tiffin Sized Bites. This week is the start of this travel tale link-up, so let's begin at the beginning with the letter "A". 

"A" is for Alajuela Province in Costa Rica. The Central Mountain Range (Cordillera Central de Costa Rica) passes through this province making it home to the most active volcanoes in Costa Rica: Poás and Arenal.

We visited both volcanos but unfortunately Arenal was covered in fog so there was no photo opportunity. However, we did have beautiful views at Parque Nacional Volcán Poás. One of the great things about visiting Poás is that you can get all the way to the edge of the crater.

  1. I'll have to make sure I show this to Mr Tiffin - he loves volcanos and the like, though we have never visited one (yet). Thanks so much for making the effort to join in A-Z Guidebook. Hope to see you back for 'B'.

    1. Hi Fiona! Mr. Tiffin would definitely love this place and Irazú volcano, also in Costa Rica, you can walk right up to the edge and there are lovely plants all around. On the way back down the mountain make sure to stop for fruit, they have the best strawberries and blackberries because of the fertile soil. Looking forward to next months linkup! :)

    1. Hi Heather, thanks for stopping by! Yes, there are many beautiful plants, and orchids. The soil is fertile from the volcanic ash, so plants grow profusely. The fruits and veggies from the region are absolutely delicious.
