On Monday, the colossus, located in the province of Alajuela, north of the San Jose airport, had several eruptions.

“There are no reports that the ash has fallen in the places where it was falling a few months ago as in  Cajón and San Luis. We have had reports only in inside the National Park,” he explained.
