Commentary

"The Atlantic Watershed of North America is the portion of the continent which drains from the Continental Divide of the Americas and the Laurentian Divide to the Atlantic Ocean. The watershed includes a portion of Greenland, the Atlantic Seaboard Watershed, and the North American portion of the American Mediterranean Sea Watershed. The oldest evidence of human occupation in Costa Rica is associated with the arrival of various groups of hunter-gatherers at about 10,000 to 7,000 years BCE, with ancient archaeological evidence (stone tool making) located in the Turrialba Valley. There was presence of Clovis culture type spearheads and arrows from South America, which opens the possibility that in this area two different cultures coexisted."
