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?

This will take at most an hour of your time. See the rocks, do a quick tour of the museum and bring your binoculars. We saw monkeys galore, and lots of birds. If you are really short on time, skip it, but TRY TO MAKE...More

We had planned on visiting this place if we had the time, and so glad we made the 2 hour drive. Well presented with a museum full of local, archaeological and anthropological information. And that's before you get to the archaeological site with in-situ spheres,...More

A great find. I knew about it but didn't realize it had a museum and it was so easy to access. Very close to Sierpe (a small town) with great local food also

We visited after reading about it in reviews and found it fascinating with good history, outdoor walks and pre Columbian information galore. We also looked at the spheres in a park in Palmar Norte after visiting. There is a charge (about $6), but important to...More
