Fast Facts

Ecotourism is alive and well in Costa Rica, a country that protects nearly 26 percent of its land.

The Arenal Volcano remained silent for nearly 450 years until it erupted on July 29, 1968, creating three distinct craters. Today, the lava flows change direction every six months or so, favoring either the southwest or northwest slopes.
