Cerro Montezuma volcano in the Tenorio volcanic complex is seen here from the SW.  The Tenorio complex marks the SE limit of the Guanacaste Range, which extends NW towards the Nicaragua border.  This complex of five volcanic cones along a NNW-SSE trend has a cluster of volcanic domes at its northern end.  No confirmed historical eruptions have occurred at Tenorio.  Despite the report of a volcanic eruption in 1816, the volcano was densely forested at the time of its December 1864 visit by Seebach. Photo by Jorge Barquero, 1987 (OVSICORI-UNA).
