On Monday, a new eruption was registered at around 8:57 am, the column of water vapor and ash particles rising some 500 meters high above the crater.

The eruptive activity in the Guanacaste colossus increased since the middle of last May, with moderate eruptions and very frequent gas exhalations.

The Rincón de la Vieja, located 23 kilometers from Liberia, is the only one that is active in the Guanacaste mountain range.

The colossus does not have the active crater in a horizontal position. It is inclined towards the northeast flank and therefore, when an eruption occurs, the material and sound waves are perceived towards that sector.
