Popularly referred to as the Hule Lagoon, this 55 hectares (136 acres) diameter beautiful lagoon is located at the base of the Cerro Congo Volcano, 11 km (6.83 miles) from the famous Poas Volcano. This area is renowned for its excellent trekking trails due to the variety of scenery and terrain, from clay, to dirt, volcanic rock, and grasslands in a rainforest at 800 m above sea level. Depart from La Fortuna around 7:30 am, to drive 1.5 hours through the plains of San Carlos, on the outskirts of the Juan Castro Blanco National Park, until you reach the Hule Lagoon.
