Tenorio Volcano National Park
You will find this undoubtedly famous national park within the Guanacaste Volcanic Range, amongst the Alajuela and Guanacaste province. Created in 1995, it covers a territory of 12 871 hectares constituted by a varied layer of the forest.
Five different life zones -a classification of areas congruent to its climatic behavior- can be found along this park. However, it's mainly constituted by the premontane rainforest. The variety of types is related to the fact that the Atlantic and Pacific slopes influence Tenorio's territory.
Consequently, the place is inhabited by a vast array of flora and fauna. You can find around 35 fish species, 78 amphibians, 135 reptiles, and over 131 mammals.
But the attractions also comprehend some scenic wonders like the famous light blue waterfall and river, which color is the result of the combination of different minerals. A chemical reaction takes place in "Los Teñideros" and the light blue color manifests. The Tenorio Volcano, which is formed by five craters, is currently inactive, but various volcanic manifestations appear across the park, like the fumaroles and hot springs, although you can't swim on them.
