Arenal Volcano


The Arenal Volcano is a perfectly shaped cone of more than 1,600 meters (5,50 feet). It is also known as the "Arenal Peak" , "Pan de Azúcar", "The Costa Rica", and the "Río Frío Volcano". Almost every night the volcano provides a spectacular show of lights and orange lava flows with its explosive eruptions. During the day you can feel and hear the volcano explode which is a spectacle in itself.

For a scenic hiking trail and view on the volcano, you can visit the Arenal Volcano National Park. There is an observatory site located in the park from which you have a beautiful view of both the volcano and the Arenal Lake. There are also several hiking trails which you can explore on your own.

Whilst the amazing views of the Arenal Volcano pull in tourists, the area offers other attractions as well.
