BackgroundThe Lomas de Sierpe, also known as Cerro Las Lomas Azules, are a group of six small Pleistocene shield volcanoes (Barquero and Saenz, 1987; Alvarado, 2000) on the Caribbean coastal plain between the Tortuguero and Parisimina rivers. The highest of the small shield volcanoes, which cover an area of about 70 km2, is Colon. Some of the volcanoes lie within Tortuguero National Park, known for its abundant birds and wildlife, turtle nesting areas, and rain-forest-lined canals known as Costa Rica's Amazon.
