Weekend # 2 -Irazu Volcano
This morning we took a 20 minute bus ride to Cartago. There we got on another bus that took us an hour up the mountain to Irazu Volcano. At the top we walked to the top of the crater, looked in and then ate lunch. The kids loved the dark volcanic dirt that was everywhere, and it was cool to watch the clouds roll in. Back down the mountain in Cartego we walked through the Basilica Of Our Lady of the Angels, a beautiful, old, very decorated Catholic church. Around 2:30 we took a taxi to Landcaster Gardens. There we hiked and saw some amazing flora and fauna. Once back in Cartago we had dinner at the Pizza Hut (I think we were all adventured out), they even had a play place! Then we were back on a bus to Tres Rios. By this time it was around 6pm and completely pitch dark, the kids thought it was midnight. Then it was showers and to bed-an end to a very busy day.
