Authorities restrict access to Costa Rica’s Rincón de la Vieja volcano due to increased activity

July 18, 2012COSTA RICAFollowing an increase in its volcanic activity, visits to the crater of Rincón de la Vieja Volcano, in the northwestern province of Guanacaste, are prohibited until further notice. Volcanologist Raúl Mora, from the National Seismological Network, explained that the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano, “while not the most active in the country, is a volcano in full activity, which prompted authorities to take preventive measures.” Mora said restricted access to the crater does not affect public access to the national park of the same name, one of northwestern Costa Rica’s main attractions. Rincón de la Vieja and Turrialba are the country’s only two volcanoes with restricted access for tourists. –Tico Times

  1. Yet another volcano actively displaying force. It seems they are coming to life one by one. I keep thinking Revelations with all the weird weather, earthquakes, and volcanoes.
