Jaco has five entrances off of the main Costanera highway. The photo here is of the first entrance from Herradura. Don't let the Pinga Grande scare you. I've studied Pre-Columbian art, Aztec and Mayan and I don't remember ever seeing that! I'm sure they are suppose to relate back to the Mayans or whatever...
Just where did these statues originate? I loved to know. Please Educate me.
The statues are not as vulgar as the monstrous condos popping up everywhere. Built mostly by Nicaraguans and Guatemalans. Don't get me wrong, these people are fabulous workers and most are honest, just looking to make some money to send home. I just wonder what will happen to all this new construction when the "big one" hits. You know, Continental Shelf/Slope and all...

The Guanacaste area hasn't moved in about 120 years. Limon area was not so lucky back in 1991.
You don't hear hear much about this from developers and the like.
This is the front side of the project on the highway. This particular projects boasts of having hot tubs on all the balconies!
Just one more reason to live the life of Pura Vida! All Costarricans already know this. After all, it is their country. AND, for those of you that think I am being negative, I prefer to consider myself an artistic realist.
Just stating the facts, ma'am.
Postsript: Someone made a comment that called me on the "vulgar" connection with the statues and the huge construction project going up. Read comments if your interested. For the record, art is art. Hot tubs on balconies,,, is vulgar in a struggling country.
