In December 2013, Finca 6 Museum, located in the canton of Osa, was inaugurated by the President Ms. Laura Chinchilla, together with several ministers, the director of the National Museum, and Vice President Luis Liberman.
This structure received an investment of about 200 million colones from the Costa Rican Tourism Institute and the National Museum. It includes an area of about 37 acres with many stone-spheres, which are the most important attraction of the site. Archaeologists were able to verify the alignment of the spheres with the celestial bodies.
Francisco Corrales, the archaeologist at the National Museum, confirmed that many spheres still maintain their natural structure. For 10 years, Finca 6 has been the focus of research in archeology, natural history, and conservation; the purpose is to understand the lifestyle of the ancestors and give the site the value that it deserves, so that domestic and foreign tourists get the opportunity to visit and learn more about this Costa Rican mystery. It is a way of combining the ecotourism destination with cultural and historical attractions, and at the same time, protecting the natural resources.
The museum is located six kilometers from Palmar Sur on the way to Sierpe.
