Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica taken by Leonidas Bratini in 2010

Arenal Volcano (Spanish: Volcán Arenal) is an active andesitic stratovolcano in north-western Costa Rica around 90 km northwest of San José, in the province of Alajuela, canton of San Carlos, and district of La Fortuna. The Arenal volcano measures at least 1,633 metres (5,358 ft) high.[2] It is conically shaped with a crater 140 metres (460 ft) in diameter. Geologically, Arenal is considered a young volcano and it is estimated to be less than 7,500 years old.[1] It is also known as "Pan de Azúcar", "Canaste", "Volcan Costa Rica", "Volcan Río Frío" or "Guatusos Peak".[1]

August-September 1993 There were strong eruptions of lava, ash and rocks. The north wall of the Crater "C" collapsed under the pressure of the lava. Four lava avalanches occurred within 20 minutes.

Stratovolcano

Arenal is the youngest stratovolcano in Costa Rica and was one of its most active between 1968 and 2010. Arenal’s crater contains a lava pool, which is composed of viscous basaltic andesite. During its eruptions lava extruded in a pulsating pattern, forming a crust, and then overflowed the crater rim and flowed almost continuously down the north to southwest flanks of the volcano.

Arenal Volcano Costa Rica

"I always went very early in the morning to take food to my brothers working on the other side of Tabacon River: walking through the woods I always heard it. That day I heard the sound of what I thought was the plane but it was stronger, I thought I was late because I had not reached the place where I usually heard the plane, then I started to run so that my brothers did not get mad all me.
Arenal Volcano Costa Rica When I crossed Tabacon River it fell hotter than usual but I did not stop. Reaching the place where my brothers were working they told me that they were frightened, they asked if I knew something about the volcano since they direction. We all turned back and started running toward our house: everything was destroyed, were dead".

Cost of Volcanic Eruptions | Volcano World | Oregon State University

How much does an eruption cost the government, private companies, and local residents? Here are a couple of estimates for the May 18, 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens and the 1955 eruption of Kilauea. Plus the total cost for the current eruption of Kilauea and the 1989-1990 eruption of Redoubt. It's a good thing we spend money on something called "volcano monitoring..."
