Volcán Platanar rises above farmlands north of the volcano.  The summit of Platanar, which is also known as Cerro Congo, after the howler monkeys occupying its slopes, reaches 2183 m.  This stratovolcano lies about 8 km SE of the city of Quesada at the northern end of the Palmira-Chocosuela-Platanar volcanic complex.  Young lava flows are located in the Finca Pradera area on its western flank. Photo by Eliecer Duarte (OVSICORI-UNA).
