How Many Volcanoes Are There in Costa Rica?
Costa Rica sits on top of the Ring of Fire, a zone characterized by several shifting tectonic plates. These shifts result in volcanic activity. Currently, five volcanoes are steadily active, including Poás, Irazú, Turrialba, Arenal and Rincón de La Vieja.
