Museo Nacional de Costa Rica
Working World and Banana Vocabulary in South Pacific Costa Rica

The National Museum of Costa Rica has worked for almost 120 years in the South Pacific of Costa Rica, especially on the archeological investigation of precolombine stone spheres in Diquís Delta.  But the place’s richness comes not only from this indigene heritage, but from the cultural landscape of the banana world, its architecture and its people.

The moving of the Banana company form the Caribbean to the Pacific in the 1930 decade modified the natural, economic and cultural landscape of the place.  The place got occupied by new inhabitants who lived in the shadow of the banana plantations during the XX century.
This investigation was developed under this context from the communities’ interest in rescuing the banana vocabulary, known all around the working world.
