Costa Rica: Finca 6 Sphere Museum

June 28, 2022 8:30am
The exact purpose and natue of the near perfectly spherical pre-Colombian Diquis stones is not known but they are undoubtedly an important part of Costa Rican culture. They largely disappeared, hidden from site buried under soil, until they were rediscovered during the clearing of land for banana plantations. Many spheres were damaged and had to be restored before being preserved for posterity.

Located 15 kilometres from Fortuna between the foothills of the Cordillera de Tilaran mountain range and the San Carlos plains, Arenal Volcano National Park covers 12,124-hectare and is one of the most visited destinations in the Northern Zone. We decided to take a trail on a private reserve, known as Arenal 1968, which offers impressive views of Arenal Volcano and lava fields. This park got its name from the Arenal Volcano eruption of 1968 which was one of the most important and crucial events in Costa Rica’s history.

Cahuita National Park was established in 1970 to protect a large coral reef off the Caribbean coast. Unfortunately, the reef is struggling for survival. An earthquake in 1991 lifted a large portion of the coral by about three meters (10 feet), some of it was exposed to the air and sun at low tide and rapidly perished.

Costa Rica: Parque Nacional de Irazú

April 12, 2022 8:42am
Located in Central Costa Rica, Irazú is an active volcano. Its maximum elevation is 11260 feet (3432 m) above sea level making it the highest volcano in Costa Rica. It used to have a spectacularly blue lake at the bottom of its crater, but an earthquake several years ago reorganized the mountain's plumbing and it drained away. The National Park is very accessible, and it is a beautiful drive . The weather can be changeable, so be prepared for a bit of everything.
