Video: Costa Rica’s Irazú Volcano

The Irazú Volcano, just east of Costa Rica’s capital, San José, is the country’s tallest at more than 11,000 feet. Its slopes are covered in forest, farm land, grazing cattle, farm houses, and small villages – all attracted by the rich volcanic soil.

Not a “cone” volcano, Irazú looks any other mountain in the Talamanca range. But when you drive to the summit and look down into the more than half-mile deep main crater, you know the difference. Though active, Irazú is perfectly safe to visit and is definitely worth the trip if you’re in the area.

In the video below, International Living Costa Rica Editor Jason Holland details his recent trip to Irazú.
