  • Rincón de la Vieja National Park surrounds two impressive volcanoes–the active Rincón de la Vieja and the dormant Santa Maria. Rincón de la Vieja erupted most recently in September 2011.
  • The active complex volcano, Rincón de la Vieja, stands 6,286 feet above sea level. Its name means “The Old Woman’s Corner” because of a local legend  about a girl whose lover was thrown into the crater by her father. She became a recluse living on the mountain and was credited with powers of healing.
