Arenal Volcano National Park
The Arenal Volcano, located inside the National Park with the same name, is a living mountain that features an almost perfect cone. Measuring 1670 meters in altitude, its regular eruptions offer an extraordinary show to those who visit the area. This popular destination has turned the region into one of the principal tourist attractions of the country, similar to the town of La Fortuna.
Initiating its activity on July 29th, 1968, the eruption divided its crater into three different parts. Then after a long period of relative tranquility, Arenal Volcano became active in 1981. Until this moment, it was considered the most active volcano in Costa Rica. At its base, lush flora and fauna are stored and its surroundings are full of recreational and eco-touristic activities, aside from spas and thermal waters.
The majestic Arenal Lake should also be mentioned. Within its depths lay the towns of Old Arenal and Tronadora, which were sunken to create this artificial lake that provides electricity to a large part of the country. Also, several adventurous activities can be enjoyed within its waters such as kayaking, sports fishing or relaxing boat rides. To experience the scenic beauty of this area, the Arenal Volcano is a mandatory destination in Costa Rica.
