Mountain trips are usually the best way to create marvelous memories. Whether its with family or friends, going on a nice day-trip to the mountain is a great way to get some fresh air, visit somewhere different and reconnect with your loved ones. And there is no better place to do this than the awesome Prusia Park!
With over 16 kilometers of trails you can enjoy, Prusia Park is absolutely perfect when it comes to day trips. It has lots to do, its close to the city and you don’t really have to have a big budget to plan your trip. The park is located in Tierra Blanca, Cartago about 2 hours from the city (depending on the traffic).
Prusia Park is part of the Irazú National Park where you can find the impressive Irazú volcano. Once you go in, its really up to you how you plan you day as there is so much to do!
If you are into hiking, there are a bunch of trails you can venture out on, some a little harder than others. The height here varies from 2600-3095msnm, so if you are exercising be prepared to feel short of breath from time to time.
You can either choose to go on various small trails or take the longer one which takes about 4-5 hours. The trails are not difficult (children may come along too!) and you are encouraged to walk at your own pace and make it an enjoyable tour!
At Prusia Park you can also find many green areas where you can rest, have a picnic, play some football and simply chill. Close by you can usually see cows, which is extremely fun for kids as they may get up and close with them and even take funny pictures!
There are no restaurants here, just a few little soda’s. So if you are planning you trip, make sure to take plenty of food and drinks – a nice cup of hot chocolate would be awesome too! Also, make sure you take comfortable warm clothing, tennis shoes and a waterproof jacket just in case!
Take our word for it! Plan your next day trip to Prusia Park and create some beautiful new memories with family or friends!
