This tour begins with a one-hour drive through the Guanacaste mountain range. During this portion, you’ll be privileged with excellent views of the dormant Miravalles Volcano. Although the volcano hasn’t experienced significant eruptions in some time, it continues to expel gas and geysers near its base— emanations which are used by the government to produce geothermal energy.
Highway 6 bisects two volcanic national parks-Tenorio Volcano National Park (Volcan Tenorio) to the east and Miravalles Volcano (Volcan Miravalles) to the west-en route to Bijagua. The rugged volcanic landscape is also home to a vibrant dry tropical forest surrounding the lava monuments at their base.
