The summit of Poás volcano, seen here in 1983 from the south, contains a group of craters along a N-S line. The forested Botos cone (foreground) is filled with the waters of Laguna del Agua Fría (also known as Laguna del Poás). The unvegetated active summit crater appears at the center. A third crater cuts the south side of the forested von Frantzius cone in the background.
