The park is frequently closed to visitors because of sulphuric gas emissions. Over the last decade there have been a number of indications that the volcano is slowly building up towards a new eruption.
In January 2009 there was a earthquake of a 6.1-magnitude, the Poás Volcano was near the epicenter that killed at least forty people.
The Poas Volcano had eruptive activity in 2009, involving minor phreatic eruptions and landslides within the northern active crater. The eruptions often include geyser-like ejections of water
