The Irazú Volcano is an active Volcano in Costa Rica, situated in the Cordillera Central close to the city of Cartago.

The name could come from either the combination of “ara” (point) and “tzu” (thunder) or a corruption of Iztarú, which was the name of an indigenous village on the flanks of the volcano. In Costa Rica it is known by the name of “El Coloso” (The Colossus) due to the catastrophes that it has provoked in the past.
