Irazú Volcano National Park is a National Park in the Central Volcanic Conservation Area of Costa Rica. The Crater Principal lake has an unusual greenish yellow coloring caused by rainfall dissolving the minerals along the crater's walls. It has also been known to change color to rust-red depending on the minerals present.
The volcano's summit has several craters, one of which contains Diego de la Haya, a green crater lake of variable depth. At 11,260 feet (3,432 m), the Irazú Volcano is the highest active volcano in Costa Rica. It is easily visited from San José, with a road leading right up to the summit craters. From the top, it is possible to see both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans on a clear day. However, such clear days are rare, and the volcano's summit is usually cloud-covered.
