The stone spheres of Costa Rica, often hailed as the “mysterious stone spheres,” are a collection of over 300 perfectly spherical stone balls scattered across various locations in the country. Ranging from a few centimetres to colossal sizes exceeding two meters in diameter and weighing up to 16 tons, these artifacts are attributed to the ancient Diquis culture, flourishing in the region from 600 to 1530 AD.
