All Costa Rican airports closed because of Volcano Eruption

Tue Sep 20, 2016 10:49 am

SAN JOSE: The Costa Rican authorities suspended operations at the country’s main airport on Monday (Sep 19) after the nearby Turrialba volcano erupted, sending a thick ash cloud into the sky.
The San Jose international airport was temporarily closed for security reasons because the volcanic ash could cause problems for planes, the civil aviation authority said.

Hope that volcano calms down, we have a group of 30 leaving for SJO
on October 7th. This is a high maintenance bunch so I shudder to think
about having to re-book these folks :(
