Volcan Arenal, Costa Rica: 41 reviews and 58 photos

by zweiblumen

For anyone fascinated with the science of vulcanology Costa Rica is paradise. Here you can view one of the world's most active volcanoes - Volcan Arenal (1633m). This volcano has been erupting almost daily since 1968 and at night time can put on a most spectacular show. Not only do you get a the lightshow but often it is accompanied by loud explosions. I was able to watch the volcano erupting while sitting outside having an evening meal at a restaurant .. what an experience!

Address: Parque Nacional Arenal, Alajuela region
Directions: The best views of the volcano can be gained to the North West of La Fortuna.
