This UNESCO World Patrimony site is hard to find - Google sent us to an address in “downtown” Palmar del Norte which is entirely wrong. Maybe that is why it is so little known. A taxi driver directed us to the right place, about a...More
We have been to Costa Rica many times and has never heard about the stone spheres. The visitors center provides informative videos and displays. We ventured out on the grounds to see these pre-Columbia’s spheres. Shaped by hand using sand! How did they move them?
