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. As part of the Circum-Pacific Ring of fire, over 200 volcanic centers have been recognized in the country, but only about 20 of them are trule recognizable as such. 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 2010 eruption of another volcano in Iceland closed European airspace for nearly a week and caused disruption to operations.

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.
