Poas Volcano Costa Rica


Poas is a very active volcano in the center of the Central American nation of Costa Rica.  This mountain, which has a peak elevation of about 2.7k meters above sea level (roughly 8.8k feet), has been erupting with great frequency, most recently in April 2017.  Contributor and pilot FlyStudioCR flew a DJI Phantom 4 Professional drone about and over Poas, which was closed to tourists during most of 2017 and 2018 due to safety concerns.  The volcano has erupted about 40 times in the past two hundred years.
