Cessna 208B Grand Caravan operated by Costa Rica’s Nature Air has crashed in Guanacaste province in northwestern Costa Rica.

10 American passengers and two Costa Rican flight crew died in the crash, says Costa Rica’s president Luis Guillermo Solís Rivera.

Costa Rica’s President expressed his condolences on Twitter.

The accident took place shortly after the charter flight took off from Punta Islita for San Jose, say reports. Solis says authorities received the first alert of the crash at 12:13.
