Duration

2.5 hours

Itinerary

The tour begins on the trail of spheres in Palma Sur, where ancient, perfectly round stones were left in careful arrangement. Learn about how, over the years, locals of the area would take the stones home as decorations, and about how United Fruit workers in the 1930s moved and even blew up the stones in order to conduct their work and in search of mythological gold.

The trail continues to the UNESCO World Heritage site where many of the stones remain in their original position. Some are arranged in what are believed to be constellations, water cycles, or calendars. At the site, you will see a sunken village left by the ancient civilization responsible for the stones, probably around the years 400-1400 BC.

The tour continues at the museum, where you will learn more about the archeological discovery and study process over the years. After the museum, you will hike up to see some more of the stone alignments.
