Volcano IrazuIrazú Volcano

The water in the crater of the Irazu volcano is garish green and it can be observed when looking down from above the throat at 3432 m high.

The Irazu, the highest volcano in Costa Rica is not known as an absolute threat, but is considered the most unpredictable volcano in the country. The last eruption was quite delicate in 1993, in 1963 the Irazu collapsed very powerfully. The garish green color appears because the crater is an acid lake.

Irazu is located in the "Parque Nacional del Volcan Irazu", one of the central volcanic mountain range. From the top of the volcano both seas of Costa Rica can be seen (with good weather): The Caribbean and the Pacific Ocean.
