Volcanoes in Central America
"Fantastic Volcanoes"

With volcanoes spread throughout its highlands, Central America is one of those rear destinations that reward even the most jaded world traveler with revelatory experiences. Stark silhouettes rise above the mountainous landscape and only few visitors will return home without pictures of these giants in their collection of snapshots. Let's explore a few of the highlights:

In Guatemala: Agua, Fuego & Acatenango. Perhaps the most frequently photographed volcanoes in Guatemala, these three peaks watch over the sleepy, colonial town of Antigua Guatemala. The forested cones of Agua and Acatenango attest to their slumbering old age, while the bare peak of Fuego and the small ash clouds rising from its summit are evidence of continuing activity. Our tours include bird watching, hiking and mountain-biking for all levels and ages.

In Costa Rica: Arenal Volcano emits small volcanic explosions every few minutes, with larger eruptions occurring occasionally. Most of the recent activity has been on the north flanks, where lava and pyroclastic flows have stripped the mountain of vegetation. Poás is another of Costa Rica's most active volcanoes. The colorful summit craters comprise a popular attraction, and are accessible by vehicle. The 2,708 meter stratovolcano lies within two vast calderas*. The southernmost of two summit crater lakes, Botos, is cold and clear, and last erupted about 7,500 years ago. The other is warm and acidic and has been the site of frequent eruptions since the first was reported in 1828. Eruptions often feature geyserlike ejections of lake water.
