Arenal Volcano—just outside La Fortuna, overlooking Lake Arenal—is Costa Rica’s most active volcano.
Dormant for more than 400 years before erupting in 1968, Arenal Volcano now has regular, minor eruptions daily. Volcanic activity—which can be safely observed from a distance—normally occurs every five to 45 minutes. The official Arenal site has a gallery of eruption photos and even a brief sound recording of an eruption.
The photo above was taken just last week on an EF tour by Lily J, who submitted it to the EF Tours group on Flickr.
We now have more than 400 photos in our Flickr group. If you have any travel destination photos, please add them to the EF Tours pool. We choose a new Photo of the Week every Thursday.
