The National Tsunami Monitoring System (Sistema Nacional de Monitoreo de Tsunamis – Sinamot) has created a simulation in the event the area is hit with a devastating 7.5 degrees earthquake, that could hit the coast with high waves within 15-20 minutes of the quake.

The Sinamot reports that there is little in history of seismicity in the region. Also, they ensure that the impact for the rest of the coast, including Puntarenas, would be minimal.
