We will leave early in the morning from the hotel and travel toward the colossus Irazú Volcano, the place where the tour will begin by mountain bike to the town of Turrialba. This voyage is approximately 50 kms, 90% of which is downhill. An excellent view will accompany us for the entire journey.The Irazú Volcano is an active volcano with a long history of eruptive cycles and is an area of great hydrological importance. From this volcano several rivers that feed the basins of the Chirripó River are born. These include the Reventazón River, the Sarapiquí River, and the Grande de Tárcoles River. The origin of the volcano’s name is of an indigenous town that existed in its proximities called Iztarú, a word that meant for the indigenous "hill of the tremor and thunder". However, through the years, as product of the verbal communication, it has been modified to its current name, “Irazú.” This volcano is one of the most visited areas of the area, so much by the national tourists as international.
