This view of Irazú from the SE shows the road leading to the summit (upper left) and principal crater (right center). The road winds 32 km up the flanks to the summit crater complex, a tourist attraction near the capital city of San José. The roughly 200-m-deep summit crater has been the source of most historical eruptions. Photo by William Melson, 1986 (Smithsonian Institution).
