The quake was by subduction of the Cocos plate in the Caribbean.

There are no reports of damage.

A Facebook post by Sharon Wendel who lives near the epicentre said, “We just had an earthquake in Costa Rica! The windows were shaking and you could see the planters moving! WOW! The power of Mother Earth (…) We have no damage and are all fine. I have to say, it was energizing. You could feel the energy release.
