Turrialba made international headlines for its volcano, named after the national park that surrounds it, Volcán Turrialba. There is no threat from this Volcano, the direction of the winds always removes the gases and ashes from Turrialba and carries them over San José. The areas adjacent to the crater took a big hit, but were completely on the other side of the volcano, giving us a splendid view when it was active.
