Rincon de la Vieja or another option

My husband and I are an active couple in our early 40s. Because of money and time we will only be able to tour one volcano during our 6 night stay. I orginally was looking at Arenal, but someone on the forum suggested Rincon de la Vieja since it is closer to where we are staying.

We would like to hike and get as close to a crater as possible. We don't mind a strenuous tour. Any suggestions?

Please check and see if the trail to the summit is open or not. Due to activity since 2011 it has been closed. I too am waiting to summit it, as it is the least touristy and requires a strenuous run(or hike for some).

Im not very sure how closer you can get to the volcano Rincon de la Vieja, im very sure you can get closer to Arenal Volcano in 3 different ways.
