Poas is a clean well kept area. They are serious about only letting those with reservations in the park. The rangers inside the park were very nice and the timing system is unique. We got there just before the fog rolled in but we did get a good view-almost surreal.

Waste of money. Cloud cover prevented any volcano sighting. Every person we spoke to had the same experience. It appears that at 9000 ft. cloud cover is usual. Very disappointing.
