The Turrialba summit crater complex is seen here from the north, with the Central Valley of Costa Rica in the background. Three well-defined craters can be seen at the upper SW end of the broad summit area. Hydrothermally altered deposits can be seen at the central and SW summit craters (right), where geothermal activity continues.  Photo by Federico Chavarria Kopper, 1999.
