Well I don't have the stats but I am sure this is the worst SJO has ever experienced in the last 3-4 years or even more.
All incoming flights have been diverted and as a result cancelled for tonight, leaving possibly over 2000 stranded.
Here is the list of the current status of all affected flights:
Copa 403 (E190) PTY-SJO: Flew PTY-SJO, diverted to PTY and is currently scheduled to land at SJO tomorrow morning (27th) at 6:30am
Continental 1796 (B738) EWR-SJO: Flew EWR-SJO, diverted to LIR and is currently scheduled to land at SJO tonight (26th) at 11:40pm UPDATE: Was just heared on CENAMER to climb and maintain FL290 after trying to approach at SJO, diversion airport is PTY and flight is cancelled until further notice.
American 2167 (B752) DFW-SJO: Flew DFW-SJO, diverted to MGA (Not Sure!) and there is no further information about its next attemped arrival at SJO
Continental 1499 (B738) IAH-SJO: Flew IAH-SJO, diverted to MGA and is currently scheduled to land at SJO tomorrow (27th) at 12:08am UPDATE: Flight also tried to approach SJO without success and has diverted, airport unknown at this time.
American 2141 (A300) MIA-SJO: Flew MIA-SJO, diverted to PTY and listen to this, fueled up in PTY, left PTY for SJO around 2 hours later and after two missed apps, diverted back to MIA! This is due to the fact that there were no hotel rooms available in PTY for the passengers.
Delta 247 (B752) ATL-SJO: Flew ATL-SJO, diverted to LIR and is currently scheduled to land at SJO tomorrow (27th) at 12:10am

Copa 795 (B73G) PTY-SJO: Flew PTY-SJO after leaving PTY around 3.5 hours on purpose and upon trying the APP to SJO, was notified via ACARS to proceed direct to San Pedro Sula (SAP) (which is its next destination after SJO) since the personnel at SJO had left!
Lacsa 623 (A321) SAL-SJO: Was completely cancelled and never left SAL for SJO, no word on its scheduled time for arrival here.
Mexicana 387 (A320) MEX-SJO: Was the only lucky flight which could get in with minor problems, landed at 10:25pm local time.
JOS (DHL) 214 (B72F) PTY-SJO: Is currently flying direct to La Aurora VOR (GUA) after deciding not to try the approach at SJO.

FWL 123 (B763) MIA-SJO: Currently cancelled without further notice of replacement flight due to WX at SJO.
Still there are several flights as I mentioned above which are going to try to get in soon and I'll keep you guys updated, the current metar shows:
MROC 270520Z 20004KT 0500 -RA FG VV001 20/20 A3003 TEMPO 2000
Tower and Radar say the condtions are not expected to improve though there is a slight rainfall now and they say it might help a little bit.
