Description 
La Paz Waterfall Garden

Poas Volcano is located in an amazing area on the slopes an hour away from the city of San Jose. During the Second World War, The USA Army engineers built the road and also the bridge over the Rio La PAZ, allowing access to this magnificent biodiversity area. Originally it started as a research project in search of medicinal plants. However, the results were not what the research team expected. It was later opened up as a tourist attraction.

This area is rich in biodiversity, over 100 species of animals in around 70 acres. It also has 3.5 miles of trails that involve around these remarkable waterfalls. There are hundreds of exhibits of animals and five waterfalls. It is a breathtaking scenery and you will walk through trails that will bring you close up to the waterfalls.

Feeders are located throughout the garden, making it easy to observe their feeding habits and interactions.
