Pieza de arte

Pre-Columbian culture fills the Museum Room. Figures from Mesoamerica and Central America, human representations of Western Mexican culture, and statues of the Costa Rican warriors who witnessed the European arrival to America.


Unique pieces such as decorated censers, jewels and jade objects, Mayan ceramic pottery, hieroglyphic texts, geometric motifs, and paintings of animals, gods and human beings taking part in religious ceremonies or palace scenes.

The Andean region is also part of this wide range of cultures, in particular the ceramic pottery typical of Nazca culture: a funerary urn and different objects used during their ritual activities.

Works of art from the collection can be found in every area of the hotel, including in the rooms.



"A fascination for Egyptian civilization has haunted me since I was a student. Drawn to its mystery, I've spent many hours reading books and documents, I've travelled to the country countless times, and, thanks to its impact, I've experienced some of the happiest moments of my life. I've had the privilege of acquiring many archaeological pieces of rare beauty, which now appear in the museum. My childhood dreams have come true."
