So glad we found this. Made a great last-day stop to pick up gifts. They have everything - furniture, hammocks, tees, trinkets, and everything imaginable made of wood. Prices range from $2 (wood bead bracelets) to about $175 (those ubiquitous wood and leather rockers).

This was a charming place to have brunch, relax and buy souvenirs. You can walk around the area and enjoy of the frog pond, beautiful wood chairs and masterpieces. The food was delicious and the whole experience was enjoyable.

Stopped here on our way back to San Jose, at the end of our trip. Nice selection of souvenirs, with decent prices compared to some other places. We didn't get to go on the tour as there were no workers at the factory as it was very close to Christmas. Worth stopping if you need to pick up some souvenirs... More

Regarding the T-shirts and other items we cannot... More

We asked our hotel where we could get souvenirs and they got us a cab to go here. What we discovered was that everything was about the same as everywhere else we had looked. t-shirts ranged from $10-$30 and the $10 shirts were just screen prints on white nothing spectacular. The good things were wooden bracelets and small trinkets. They... More

A quick lunch stop after getting our rental car. Typical food; quick service. Lots of animals running around this open air restaurant. Lunch for 3 was $25.

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
