COSTA RICA NEWS – Waves up to 4.6 metres ( 15 feet) will be common in the port city of Limón this week due to a high pressure system causing strong winds and in turn strong waves.

Omar Lizano, oceanographer for the Centro de Investigación en Ciencias del Mar y Limnología (Cimar) de la Universidad de Costa Rica (Center for Research in Marine Sciences and Limnology (Cimar) of the University of Costa Rica), explains the conditions will remain to the end of the week, possibly even into the weekend.

The atypical conditions began to appear on Saturday around 9:00pm, when residents observed that large waves started reaching the  Vargas park, water spilling onto the main streets of downtown Limón.

Lizano added that the waves can be very dangerous for swimmers and small to medium sized boats.

The expert recommends don’t mess with the sea.
