Volcán Irazú

Getting Here and Around

Follow directions to Cartago, but shortly before the city a Y intersection marks the beginning of the road up Irazú; traffic to Cartago veers right, then left immediately past the first lights. From downtown Cartago, a 45-minute trip, take the road to Irazú at the northeast corner of the basilica. Signs from Cartago lead you to the park. Buses head to Volcán Irazú from San José (Avda. 2, Cs. 1–3) daily at 8 and 8:45 am and return at 12:30 pm.
