View a volcano up close in Costa Rica
Families looking for an adventure may want to take a Costa Rica tour of the Arenal Volcano National Park. The 692-acre park is located within the Arenal Conservation Area.
Walking along the rough landscape and lush greenery, all the while under the sparkling blue skies, is an ideal way to spend a family vacation. The Arenal Volcano is a spectacular site and features flowing lava and boulder eruptions on a frequent basis. The volcano’s largest eruption took place in 1968, when a blast of lava and molten boulders destroyed 165 feet of the peak’s elevation and the villages of Tabacón and Pueblo Nuevo. Since then, the volcano has had a number of other eruptions in 1973, 1975, 1993, 200, 2003 and 2005, according to the Costa Rica National Parks Arenal Volcano National Park website.
If volcanoes are not enough of an attraction for everyone in the family, there is a large variety of shopping and relaxation services available elsewhere in the area. Take time to enjoy your family’s company in the natural wonder of Costa Rica.
