About Arenal Volcano, San Jose

Standing tall at a height of 5480 feet above MSL, the Arenal volcano is the most active volcano in Costa Rica and is around 7,500 years old. Up until 1968, the volcano was dormant with dense vegetation concealing its terrain and the nearby village settlements. The 1968 eruption damaged the town of Tabacón and three more craters were formed from it.

The National Park where the volcano is located is a sight to behold with lush green trails that show a majestic view of the fire-breathing dome. The park is home to 131 species of mammals and 135 species of reptiles. The pathways do make for a memorable hike through the park as you spot different species of monkeys, jaguars, raccoons, sloths, snakes like boa constrictors and vipers and iguanas. The place is also loved by bird watchers to spot hummingbirds, chestnut mandibles and trogons among others.

The lake located at the peak of the old crater is a common ground for fishing
