The operation was carried in the early hours of Friday morning, between 5 and 7 and with the participation of the Air Surveillance Service (Servicio de Vigilancia Aérea) and the Tourist Police (Policía Turística).

The objective, according to Stephen Madden, head of the immigration police, is part of an operational strategy based on “specific analysis of the need and vulnerability of some areas of the country”, to detect illegals, mainly from the neighboring country to the north (Nicaragua).

This is the fifth major operation so far this year; the others carried out in the areas of Manuel Antonio, Quepos, Tilarán and Cartago.
