In the Guanacaste Range it is usual that what receives the name of a volcano is actually a massif with several craters or volcanic peaks. Most of the Costa Rican volcanoes are located in the Guanacaste and Central Volcanic range.
The Arenal Volcano was almost a perfect cone, until 1968, when after almost 500 years of inactivity the volcano exploded and more craters developed.


Most of these volcanoes and the surrounding areas are protected as National Parks, they are very close to San Jose city and visit one of them is a perfect one-day trip. The Central Volcanic range has more active volcanoes, and are also younger (less than 1 my) than the volcanoes of the Guanacaste range (less than 2 my). A geothermic project run by the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (Costa Rican Electricity Institute) takes place in the Miravalles volcano.
