Costa Rica volcano eruptions wreck tourism economy

Friday, June 30, 2017

Costa Rican businesses in the former agricultural towns near the Poás volcano in Alajuela are reporting up to 70 percent decreases in sales over recent weeks since the volcano entered a new, eruptive phase.

Tourism has become a mainstay of this national park and surrounding area due to its proximity to the main international airport and to San José – making it a popular one-day trip for foreigners and locals alike.
