Not only a land of natural wonders, Costa Careyes, Mexico is also a place of spiritual ones, as well. Cosmic art installations of almost astronomical size play equally with the land and light. Legend has it the pristine stretch of beach on which they sit, are where the gods once gathered and creation began. If the myth of Playa Teopa were not other worldly enough, Costa Careyes, Mexico is also the resting place of its own meteor.

Gian Franco Brignone, the founder of Costa Careyes, dreamt of a man and a woman united by the cosmos while bathed in the light of the setting sun. In 2006, the manifestations of his dream were created. Majestically perched on a cliff overlooking Playa Teopa, La Copa del Sol, which represents the woman, rises 35 feet from its base and is over 88 feet in diameter.  Equally an acoustic and visual marvel, it catches and cups the sun.
