Interpretive Hike "Volcanic Crater Lagoon"underline mini

Have you ever imagined being inside a volcanic crater? This adventure starts in the Caburgua area, 35 minutes from Pucón. Along the way, you will see traces of past eruptions, with large amounts of volcanic mud and geological formations from different ages. You will also receive an introduction to volcanology and a detailed history of the volcanos in the area. Crossing private fields in a hour and a half hike, we climb to the crater. Inside, we can see a natural amphitheater sealed with a green Emerald water lagoon. Without sunscreen, we can swim in the mineralized hot springs, which are about 25ºC. This place has varied vegetation and in the afternoon, we can enjoy a unique concert, when giant toads and frogs use the ampitheater to liven up the this naturally magical place. During winter months, we arrive there with snow shoes, and we can see many birds and other animals of the area. Also, at times it is possible to see the frozen lagoon, which is astonishingly beautiful.
