Miravalles Volcano Protected Zone

Miravalles Volcano, the highest of the volcanic Guanacaste Range, soars 2,028 m (6,654 ft) above sea level. The summit is usually covered in thick clouds and frequent rain.

Due to its volcanic activity, evidenced by bubbling mud holes and vents that expel gases and hot steam, the Costa Rican Electrical Company (ICE) is transforming geothermal energy from this volcano into electricity.
