The Director of the Air Surveillance Service, Juan Luis Vargas, said that 10 aircraft are at the service of Costa Ricans and will have strong operations at national airports.
For its part, the Director of the National Coast Guard Service, Martin Arias, recommended that citizens follow recommendations such as not to use drugs or ingest excessive amounts of alcohol.
Similarly, the Border Police Director, Allan Obando, estimated that 4,000 people will leave the country’s borders, which will generate a special operation in Peñas Blancas. An important influx of Nicaraguans who take advantage of this time to return to the neighboring country is expected.
