Volcanoes of Costa Rica | Costa Rica

Costa Rica is home a great number of volcanoes: there are six active volcanoes and another 61 dormant or extinct ones. Three of the most noticible volcanoes are Arenal, Poás and Irazú.

For the past fifty years, Arenal was the country’s most active volcano, actually one of the ten most active volcanoes in the world. But it entered into a resting phase in 2010. Poás and Irazú are caldera volcanoes, whose craters are filled with water and rising steam.
