The Ovsicori described it as a “hydrothermal eruption

After having closed during a year and four months for the constant activity, which began in Semana Santa (Holy Week) of 2017, the colossus opened its doors to the public on August 2018, but with new rules for visitors.

For example, tickets to appreciate its scenic beauty of the Poas National Park are now purchased online and people can enter at different times and in controlled groups.

As part of the changes when visiting the Colossus, people now encounter a larger cratic lagoon and a reinforced security system, as it is an active volcano.
