An active volcano draped with virgin forest, this attractive park lies 12 miles northeast of Liberia at the end of a non paved road. Though it's a tough hike to the top, one can see Lake Nicaragua from the summit on a clear day, and the volcano's slopes are covered with both wet and dry forests, which contain hidden lakes, rivers and waterfalls and an abundance of wildlife.
Resident species include the resplendent quetzal, three-wattles bellbirds, morpho butterflies, tapir, coatimundis and three kinds of monkeys. The park also has small geysers, bubbling mud pots and mineral hot springs, which have earned it the name "Costa Rica's Yellowstone".
