Rains expected to lessen as of Saturday; Manuel Antonio reopens

October 27, 2017

Manuel Antonio National Park has reopened and damage from continuing heavy rains this week appears to have been limited. Earlier this week, authorities expressed concerns that heavy rains, while typical this time of year in Costa Rica, might cause disproportionate damage to land – particularly riverbanks – already destabilized by Tropical Storm Nate in early October.

Among other closures around the country as a preventive measure before heavy rains that intensified on Tuesday and continued through last night, Manuel Antonio National Park was closed on Tuesday because of fears of flooding. However, the National System of Conservation Areas (SINAC) announced that the park was reopened shortly thereafter and is receiving visitors as usual.

While the “meteorological disturbance” off Costa Rica’s Pacific coast has intensified to form Tropical Storm Selma, the storm is moving away from Costa Rica toward El Salvador, the National Meteorological Institute stated Friday morning.
