VISITS TO THE VOLCANOES
Visit volcanoes in Costa Rica Although only five volcanoes in Costa Rica are actually considered active volcanoes, there are over 200 identifiable volcanic formations that date back over 65 million years! Volcanoes are a key part of this country’s spectacular natural diversity. Their eruptions make the soil fertile by filling it with nutrients, resulting in a lush landscape, which provides a home to a myriad of bird and wildlife species as well as numerous tropical and exotic plants and trees. The volcanoes of Costa Rica are not only a beautiful sight to see, but they are also fabulous recreational grounds for sports such as hiking, whitewater rafting, sportfishing, swimming, kayaking, horseback riding, camping and mountain biking.
