Theme Day: Entry, adorned with Pre-Columbian Stone Sphere
It has one of the stone spheres that date to as old as 200 B.C. There are about 300 of them in Costa Rica. There are two in Tamarindo, which I have shown in the past, although this one is larger. The largest ones are about 2 meters (6.6 feet) in diameter, weighing 15 tons.
They have been unearthed at many locations scattered round Cost Rica, including the around the Gulf of Papagayo, which is very close to Liberia.
The opening scene from the first Indiana Jones movie featured one of these stones.
This week we have photos of Grenada, Nicaragua posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
