Barva Volcano: There are three dormant volcanoes located within the Braulio Carrillo National Park. One of them is the Barva (2906 m), densely forested on its Northern slope. The surroundings of Barva house two precious lagoons: Laguna Barva with a diameter of 100 meters and Danta with 500 meters. It is the only volcano of the Central Mountain Range that has been inactive for the past 400 years.

The Barva Volcano remains undiscovered by tourism. The park entrance is located in Sacramento, a small village north of the town of Barva. A 4x4 vehicle is needed to get from Sacramento to the ranger station. An exciting day in the tropical cloud forest is guaranteed, lonely and tranquil with an impressive flora and fauna. Foggy climate is common and adds to the special atmosphere of the cloud forest.

Amenities: Camping area (for up to 60 people)
