Friday marks the 60th anniversary of one of the major eruptions of the Volcán Poás.


The day was May 17, 1953 that many Costa Ricans will never forget. One of those is Don Aurelio Morales, at 94 years of age, remembers the day sixty years ago like it was yesterday.

Then, 34 years of age, Don Aurelio worked the fields around the colossus.

The eruption lasted two years and is one of the majors after the 1934 and 1910 eruptons.

Like Don Aurelio, many old timers remember the day of the eruption with a bit of humour.

Despite that the volcano remains actve, the area residents go about their daily life with tranquility.
