Costa Rica is one of the most sought after holiday destinations for any nature lover, and this mountainous, forested land has an incredible biodiversity. However, one attraction stands out above all others: the powerful Arenal Volcano.
Arenal Volcano is the youngest in Costa Rica, less than 7,500 years old. The height of the volcano varies depending on the activity, but is currently about 1,657 m above sea level.
For many years, Arenal has been considered a latent volcano with no historical records of eruptions. This sleeping giant suddenly woke up on July 29, 1968, with a huge series of eruptions that led to the destruction of nearby cities and the loss of lives.
For decades after the 1968 eruption, volcanic activity continued with smaller eruptions and frequent lava flows. Since 2010, the activity has decreased and no new lava flows have appeared. However, it is an indisputable fact that Arenal is still an extremely active volcano, which can erupt violently at any time.
Much of Costa Rica's land is in protected reserves or nature parks, and Arenal Volcano is in Arenal Volcano National Park. In this natural park lives an incredible variety of wild animals, among the most famous. From birds like toucans and hummingbirds to monkeys, jaguars, sloths, ocelots or Boa snakes.
