The tour guide, Luis Carlos Burgos, decided to make a video of the occurrence and sent it to the local television news, Telenoticias.

Raul Mora, volcanologist for the Universidad de Costa Rica (UCR) explains that many tour guides in the areas of La Fortuna organize clandestine tours of the colossus, charging tourists hundreds of dollars for being guided to the top of the cone shaped volcano.

Climbing the Arenal volcano is illegal, the colossus surrounded by a national park that has restricted access to visitors.

The video is now being analyzed by park rangers to determine how the persons got to the top and the route they took.

Or rule out that the visitors where extraterrestrial.
