A report by the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica registered the first temblor’s epicenter at 50 kilometers (31 miles) west of Bahia Ballena, in the southern Pacific, while the second was located in the northern Pacific, near the Nicaraguan coast.
The National Seismological Network reported the magnitudes at 5.3 and 6.3, respectively.
