Rock Statues In La Costa de Papito

There’s always something curious in Costa Rica. When I and my friends visit Costa Rica (years before I had built my house), we usually stay at the La Costa de Papito in Puerta Viejo, Limon for some serious R and R.

La Costa de Papito is one of those picturesque rows of bungalows where you can be one with Nature but still feel like you’re living in luxury. The resort is also in the middle of a lush five acre garden. So when you look out from the window — between the explosion of heliconias, bromeliads, palms, gingers, tropical fruit trees and flowers, you see these rock statues protruding out of the vegetation and staring back at you.

When I and my friends take in the invigorating fresh air and the reassuring sound of the surf, I look at these rock statues with great curiosity. One of the butlers told me that they were built as house guardians in every bungalow. They keep watch over us like “angels”. But then, I realized these angels needed more guarding than we did, with all the ruckus we raised.

These statues bore witness to a lot of mayhem that transpired during those week long holidays. We got ourselves drunk while we partied with the cute Ticans who followed us when we ventured out into the beach. Not only that, I think if these were real people, they would feel sick by how much debauchery we made. Thinking about it makes me laugh.

So whenever I look at these photos, I am reminded of happier, reckless times. As ironic as these stoic and impenetrable statues are, they are the icons of my constantly partying youth.
