Officials from the National Police, Coast Guard, the Intelligence and Security Division (DIS) and the Municipality of La Cruz, Guanacaste, visited the northern Guanacaste communities of  Las Vueltas, Cangrejal de Cuajiniquil and Puerto Soley to hand out supplies on Oct. 10.

La Cruz was among the many Costa Rican cantons hard hit by Tropical Storm Nate late last week.
