Several craters have formed at the summit of Irazú: the gray, flat floor of the Playa Hermosa crater, Irazú's main crater (center), and the Diego de la Haya crater (top left). A green lake fills the bottom of the main crater in this 1999 view, the source of most of Irazú's historical eruptions. Photo by Federico Chavarria Kopper, 1999.
