About 11 km north of the Poas volcano, at the base of the Congo volcano, there are three beautiful lagoons.

The entire area that includes the lagoons and its exuberant vegetation is called Bosque Alegre. The largest of these lagoons is the Hule lagoon, which has a dimension of 1150 mt. (54.7 ha and 26.5 m depth), the Congo Lagoon (14.6 m deep and an area of 15 ha) and a much smaller one without a name.  

The Hule lagoon is, perhaps, one of the most beautiful in the country and the wildlife refuge where one of the places of high tourist potential is located, both for its scenic beauty and for the abundance and biological diversity present in the forest. that surrounds it. The tourist who arrives for the first time at the viewpoint, when the sun shines, is stunned by so much beauty gathered in a sector still unknown to most Costa Ricans.  

Its shallow shores have favored the development of large numbers of aquatic macrophytes and in its waters abound the guapotes. In the surroundings are common armadillos, the capuchin and the congos, the otters in certain nearby rivers and at least 170 species of birds (25% of the total identified in Costa Rica). The odd wild duck usually breaks the monotomy of silence in its fleeting flight and of sonorous fluttering. Other species representative of the area are butterflies and bats, of which 60 and 24 species have been identified, respectively. Given the congenital beauty of this unique volcanic landscape, today it constitutes a protected area called Bosque Alegre Wildlife National Wildlife Refuge.
