The Diquis valley is where most stone spheres have been found. This fertile river delta near Palmar Sur, became a banana plantation developed in the 1930's by the United Fruit Co. Ever since then, many archeological sites have been discovered that contain unique stone spheres of up to 2.5 meters in diameter.
