We hadn't found a lot of souvenirs on our 10 day trip, and I was itching to spend my colones before heading to the airport. Sr y Sra Ese was recommended by the Trapp Inn nearby. We did not have time for the tour, coffee or lunch, but was able to purchase a few things that were perhaps slightly more... More

We found this shop on Trip Advisor, and good thing. We were near the end of our nearly two week trip to Costa Rica and hadn't really encountered any good souvenir shops. This shop was within a mile or two of where we were staying at the Courtyard by Marriott near the airport. It's a little hard to find--it's kind... More

This is a nice place to tour the factory and purchase the wood products which are all hand made in the factory. Tour the factory first and then walk through the gift shop and gardens. They offer free coffee and snacks to the visitors. The tour is free and the wooden souvenirs are not too expensive. After you tour the... More

Having lunch with my tour group at this great spot. They have a gift shop with some incredible wood products. During the week they give tours of the factory where everything is made. Great last minute souvenir stop.

If you need to buy souvenirs of your trip, just go there before taking the plane! You will find plenty of things: earrings, necklaces, bracelets, home furniture, t-shirts, bags... We bought the most of souvenirs there. We could find all that we wanted.

My family and I stopped here on our way out of Costa Rica last year and this year. Their items are affordable. They weren't the cheapest place we found but you can't beat their location. They are only about 5 mins from the international airport. They have a wide variety of items. My daughters and I also had the chance... More

We, my husband and I, were looking for somewhere to get some souvenirs on our last day in Costa Rica. The owner at Hotel Robledal recommended we do shopping and factory tour here. He drove us and even waited for us. We decided not to do the factory tour, regrettably, but did a fair bit of shopping here. We purchased... More

I have taken so many tour groups to this place that they have made me an honorary tour guide! I take my tours through the exotic wood bodegas, factory & jewelry manufacturing (all by hand). We talk to the famous artist and sculptor, Reinier Mora, as he explains how he carves out his marvelous creative works, based on the flow... More

We didn't do the factory tour but we did shop, as we always do when visiting CR, at the store, which is huge and offers a very wide range of affordable wooden products, t-shirts, jewelry, etc. There is also an attractive-looking restaurant and other attractions. They do a great job preparing your purchases for travel.

My wife and I had quite a few hours to spend at the San Jose airport between our regional flight from Puerto Jiminez and our international flight back to New York. My wife thought we might use the time to visit Sarchi, a crafts town we had seen last year. On speaking to a cab driver, we found that the... More
