Cerro Pico Blanco
The Cerro Pico Blanco is the second highest mountain of the Cerros de Escazú, Costa Rica, with a summit elevation of 2,428 m (7,966 ft). Pico Blanco means literally 'white peak', making reference of the rocky outcropping close to its highest point, that looks light gray from the Central Valley.
On January 15, 1990, a plane carrying 21 persons crashed near Pico Blanco, shortly after taking off from San Jose's Juan Santamaria Airport; all aboard perished.
