  • We stopped on the way from Drake Bay in Manuel Antonio. A small museum in a building-a little bit of archaeology, history, actual Pro balls and hypotheses about their origin/destination. Then enter the open area: among the banana plantation look balls, and buried, only the top of the sticks out, and excavated. Once you are here, don't go around attention another interesting object, which does not pass: "banana train". This design across stretches of the plantation and is designed to facilitate the transportation of bunches of gathering places to the point of acceptance. Walk minutes to wait until 10-15 appear and watch collectors work "train" in action. Working customized look: you and sfotkatsja give and potashhit"parovozik". And there is growing guajava (Central track as far as it will go and then go right a bit). Tasty!)))

  • 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 b...  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  more »

  • This was a very magical experience and we documented for our doc under an episode called GUÍAS (Guides). Despite the scalding day and a very humid weather we managed to visit the Sitio Museu finca 6 and walk thru a series of trails until we got to see the famous ancient stone spheres left by an ancient local civilization.
  • this archeological site contains ancient stone spheres made by the original natives of this land. There are stone spheres both found there on site and also relocated back from stately houses and office buidings in San Jose, where they had been taken to during the 20th century. A brand new museum on site , property of Museo Nacional de Costa Rica provides graphic displays and videos about the spheres, and the site in general. There is a paved road all the way to the entrance of the site, located in an old abandoned banana plantation. No food for sale on site, but once you explore there, you can continue a bit further down the road to the very nice town of Sierpe, next to the river with the same name,where there are many options.
  • I have always wanted to see the mysterious stone spheres found in Costa Rica. This museum has some. A few are in their original locations; some were recovered from other locations. The museum has descriptions, both text and video, of the culture that made and moved them.
  • Great museum and grounds.
