The Unesco World Heritage has granted protection of mysterious stone spheres found in remote areas of Costa Rica.

Already 6 years ago, members of Costa Rica Sun Tours visited Finca 6, located in the southern zone of Sierpe, to learn about the origin and history of the spheres. The stone spheres date back to pre-columbian times of which archeologists know little about. Studies are taking place of why they were made and how they were made into perfect round globes of various sizes. Our newly elected President Luis Guillermo Solis said “the international recognition could ignite rural tourism in the economically depressed Southern Zone. The president said he was honored as a Costa Rican and a historian at the news.”
