Two foreign tourists who got lost this Thursday had to spend the night inside the Arenal Volcano National Park before being rescued by authorities of the protected area.

The tourists, one English and one Italian, entered with a group of four people who hired an illegal tour to reach the top of Cerro Chato, located within the National Park, were found stable and slightly dehydrated.

“This type of rescue logistics generates a high economic cost that the State and the different Costa Rican emergency bodies incur, to attend to this type of emergency,” said Mariana Jiménez, director of the Arenal Huetar Norte Conservation Area.
