This national park is especially famous for its large geothermic activity and secondary volcanic activity.

The Las Pailas sector is the most popular since it’s more accessible and closer to Liberia.

Mud Pots: There are two areas where you could observe the mud pots on the trail. One of them looked like a little lake (laguna fumarolic) that bubbled every few seconds or so. Further down the trail, is Volcano (little volcano). This part of the mud pots is really active and it’s constantly bubbling which is very nice to see.

Once you walk out of the forest, you encounter this everlasting landscape. All you see is the mountain range, forest and clear skies ahead of you. It´s amazing how polar opposite the lansdcape is like in dry season since most of it is so yellow.
