CIMAR oceanographer, Omar Lizano, explained that areas like Samara, in Guanacaste can expect winds gusts up to 46 km/h and waves up 2.2 metres.

Lizano insisted that small boats – less than 7 metres in length – should avoid navigating the North Pacific between Thursday and Sunday, where “yellow” and “red” conditions are maintained.

In Puntarenas a “yellow” alert is in effect, with winds of up to 60 km/h and 1.5 high waves expected.

All other areas, the Central Pacific (Jaco, Herradura, Hermosa, Quepos, Manuel Antonio, etc) and the South Pacific (Golfito), and the Caribbean coasts remain on”green” alert.

Similar weather conditions and alerts were made on Januay 8, when the catamaran Pura Vida Princess, with 109 people aboard, sunk. Three people died that day.
