The summit crater complex of Irazú volcano is seen in this aerial view with north to the left.  Eruptive activity at Irazú has migrated to the west from a crater out of view beyond the top of the photo to the Diego de la Haya crater (active during the 19th century) and then to the main crater (Cráter Principal).  Playa Hermosa is a largely buried older crater.  The road at the right leads to communication towers at the summit of Irazú (lower right). Aerofoto S. A., 1994 (published in Barquero, 1998).
