Safety urged on Costa Rican Poás volcano

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Costa Rica’s tourism chamber, Canatur, is calling on people not to forget about the Poás Volcano region altogether, but rather to visit the many destinations in areas outside the security perimeter.

The volcano’s ongoing activity, the temporary closure of the national park, and the resulting establishment of a security perimeter around the volcano have hurt nearby tourism businesses, the chamber noted.

The National Emergency Commission said that its preventive actions in recent past days “do not represent restrictions on tourist and productive activities in surrounding areas.”
