“Don't miss this archeological site !”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Just outside of volcan, this is the only archeological site that I know of that is located at the dig site with a large quantity of antiquities to see. Run by the owner resident of the location who is bilingual. For a small fee (?$5.00) she will give you a private tour through the grounds. If you get lost trying to find the location, do stop and ask for direction...don't miss this !

Very interesting Archeology site, with mant artifacts of the past...old burial pots are still there and a statue of a negro looking chap with a oriental guy on his soldiers..the people who lived here disapeared after nearby volcan Baru exploded many thousands of years ago.

Thank Panamajock E
