Poás Volcano Dazzles Christmas Day Visitors With Eruption

The volcán Poás on the north side of the Central Valley gave visitors a display of fireworks on Christmad day, spewing ash and mud some 500 metres into the air, forcing national park officials to control access to the crater.

For those who decided to visit the colossus on Christmas day, got the surprise of their life, as the volcano offered a show that topped any of the fireworks displays that are tradition at Christmas.

Park officials say access to the park and crater is controlled and may be closed off at any time, depending on the action of the volcano.

The eruption occurred at 9:50am and is part of the normal behaviour of the active volcano.
