Arenal Volcano

La Fortuna is one of the most visited places in Costa Rica and where I spent the majority of my time. Arenal was dormant for hundreds of years and exhibited a single crater at its summit, with minor fumaroles activity, covered by dense vegetation. In 1968 it erupted unexpectedly, destroying the small town of Tabacón. Due to the eruption three more craters were created on the western flanks but only one of them still exists today. Since 2010, Arenal has been dormant although it looks active!
