Barva Volcano

San José Province, Costa Rica

The massive, 9,500-foot-tall Barva Volcano lies in the lush Braulio Carrillo National Park. The entire Barva Volcano hike takes approximately six hours (including a stop for lunch), but if you put in the time you'll be treated to views of two crater lakes and tons of gorgeous wildlife. Bird-watching is particularly rewarding here, as you'll get a chance to spot the striking Resplendent Quetzal.
