Of the 26,000 migrants who entered Costa Rica between November 2015 and December 2016, in their attempt to reach the United States, some 8,000 were Cubans, according to official government figures.

Migrants making their way through Costa Rica from Panama and headed north is nothing new. However, in late 2015, in the country began a migrant crisis when Nicaragua closed its borders to all migrants.

Currently several thousand African and Haitian migrants are still in Costa Rica, housed in temporary shelters in area mainly in La Cruz, near the northern border.

Of the Cuban migrants arrested Sunday, authorities say they are in good health and housed in a local hotel near Golfito, while their future is being determined.
