Arenal Volcano Overview
At 5,437 feet (1,657 meters), the Arenal Volcano looms large and ominous over the pastured green hillsides that surround its base. Although currently in a resting phase, Arenal remained the country’s most active volcano for the past 43 years. Its storied history is charged with eruptions — both major and minor — that have intimately affected the region and the people who live here.
