Rincon da la Vieja National Park - Costa Rica

Rincˇn de la Vieja0, an active volcano in a period of relative calm, is the largest of five volcanoes that make up the Cordillera de Guanacaste. It is composed of nine separate but contiguous volcanic craters, with dormant Santa MarÝa the tallest and most easterly. Its crater harbors a forest-rimmed lake popular with quetzals, linnets, and tapirs. The main crater Von Seebach, sometimes called the Rincˇn de la Vieja crater still steams. Icy Lake Los Jilgueros lies between the two craters. The last serious eruption was in 1983. Rincˇn, however, spewed lava and acid gases on 8 May 1991, causing destructive lahores (ash-mud flows). The slopes still bear reminders of the destructive force of the acid cloud that burnt away much of the vegetation on the southeastern slope.
