The verdant forests mantling the Tenorio volcanic complex are seen from the Río Celeste drainage.  The Tenorio complex consists of five volcanic cones aligned NNW-SSE.  Several archaeological sites are located around the complex, testament to the importance of the area to prehispanic Indians.  The Tenorio complex marks the SE end of the Guanacaste Range; a range of low hills separates it from the next volcano to the SE, Arenal. Photo by William Melson, 1985 (Smithsonian Institution).
