Jacó, Quepos and Fraijanes got an early morning shaking today when an earthquake estimated at a 4.0 magnitude took place offshore at 2:45 a.m.. The Laboratorio de Ingenieria Sismica said the estimated epicenter was 23.1 kilometers south of Jacó. That’s about 14 miles, and because of the curvature of the coastline, the location is well out to sea. The Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico de Costa Rica estimated the magnitude at 3.1.
