Caption: Arenal volcano. Eruption of the Arenal volcano, Costa Rica, at night. Glowing lava is seen. This active volcano has about five small eruptions a day. These eruptions produce ash clouds, lava flows and booming noises. The volcano's regular eruptions and accessible location have made it a major tourist attraction. The volcano is 1633 metres high. In recorded history, this volcano was dormant from 1525 until, in 1968, it erupted killing 78 people. Mount Arenal is one of thirteen active and dormant volcanoes in Costa Rica. These volcanoes form part of the Pacific Ring of Fire, a chain of volcanoes which circle the Pacific Ocean.
