Located three hours from Guanacaste, Arenal is a cone-shaped volcano rising out of flat, surrounding plains. It is the most active volcano in Costa Rica. In the daytime, clouds of ash and smoke frequently billow into the sky. On clear nights, spectators are occasionally treated to eruptions of lava and burning rocks that explode into the air and shower down the cinder cone. Even when it is overcast, the rumblings, venting and molten lava glowing through the clouds afford a very spectacular experience. Near the Arenal volcano are the Tabacon Hot Springs, where you can relax after a day of hiking in the Rain Forest, and enjoy the most splendid natural hot mineral springs, pools and waterfalls.
