With its perfect cone shape, the Arenal Volcano is one of the world’s most visited volcanoes and a major tourism destination in Costa Rica. Located near the town of La Fortuna, Arenal is Costa Rica’s third most active volcano. The 12,016-hectare Arenal Volcano National Park features several hiking trails through the surrounding forest, and viewpoints to see the volcano and old lava flows. There is actually a second volcano in the national park – the extinct Chato Volcano (Cerro Chato). Chato’s crater collapsed years ago, and in its place is a beautiful emerald lake.
