Photographer's Note

Here is Arenal in all its splendour. Top of 1650 m, it is active since 1968 and he continues growing. The photograph which is taken from the west, does not allow to see the ancient cone. There is no report of eruption known before 1968 and the mountain was called the peak Arenal. The previous eruptions ended before 15th century. On July 29th, 1968, a mouth opened in feet of the ancient cone, and the cast subjects and gases caused the complete loss of the village Pueblo Nuovo. Human losses came to 80 persons. Evidence gathered following this beginning of eruption, and shown in the small museum of Observatory Lodge mentions big explosions, volcanic bombs having been ejected about 5 km and about burning clouds.
