Know the origin of the national park's name
The leyend said that there was a princess called Curubandá, who fell in love with Mixoac, chief of a enemy tribe. When his father, curubandé, found out about the relationship, he threw Mixoac inside the volcano.
Curubandá went to live right next the volcano where his lover died, and there she gave birth to his first child. To allow this one to be with his father, she threw him in the volcano too.
Since then, she lived next the volcano until she became old and people used to think that she was a witch and her house was known as "corner of the old woman" or in spanish "Rincon de la Vieja" and that's where the volcano's name comes from."
