Two earthquakes of magnitudes of 4.5 took place over the weekend.
The first was at 8:18 a.m. Saturday. The Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico de Costa Rica estimated the epicenter to be just off the South coast of the Osa peninsula near Carate. Then at 10:52 Sunday a second quake took place in the hills above Puntarenas at Zagala Nueva de Montes de Oro.
Quakes of that magnitude are not likely to cause great damage
