Its not easy getting here without a car. We do not hire cars when we travel. We had spent time in the Corcaovado park, and were travelling onto Puerto Norte for the night. So we caught a bus from Sierpe to the road leading down to the site, the driver dropped us, with our rucksacks, and it was well worth the effort. There is no cafe or facilities there at all apart from toilets. The staff do not speak English , but were very helpful. There were some explanations in English, but wiki article helps to understand it too. The civilisation was in the Diquis Delta circa 800BC to 800AD and the statues and spheres they made to show their status are on display. We had never seen peg ststues and spheres before. The site are outside and you can wander around. definitely worth a visit, pay with a card . Then we walked back to the main road and waited a long time for a bus. Would not have missed this visit.

Modern exhibition obviously sponsored by UNESCO grants. Fascinating story about the unknown significance of the great efforts constructing these mysterious stones. Also interesting transport system for bananas.

This place is under development and will probably get better with time. There were two small exhibitions, one on wild life and one on the history of the stones. Information in both English and Spanish. (Spanish early operations got away easy from what I heard before) There is a small path through banana plantations were the stones can be viewed at historical settlements. Good parking lot and clean restrooms. Don’t go to this area only for this museum but if you are passing by it’s worth a visit.

I enjoy archaeological sites and museums and was fascinated by the round stones. The entry fee was only $6 and there are some interesting paths as well as air-conditioned museum. This was my 4th trip to Costa Rica and yet I had never heard of these stones so since we were driving to Sirena for our boat tour to Corcovado it seemed like a good time to stop by. Interesting history of the stones mixed with more recent history of the banana plantation next door made for a unique cultural experience. We spent about a little more than an hour there which about the minimum to see everything.

The story of the stone spheres and the culture of the people who built them is described inside the air-con museum. Plenty of interesting facts here. The visit continues outside where you can follow two or three trails that pass by the stones and the places where buildings would have stood. When we visited, even at 9:30am, there were mosquitoes around, so bring some repellent. The trails are not entirely finished. But you will see plenty of the spheres. You also cross a banana rail. Overall the experience was very peaceful and lasted about 90minutes. I would recommend on the way out from the Corcovado National Park (if you take the early boat).
