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

Hello Lindsey, we are very disappointed to know you didn't liked our store. We always try to keep the best variety of Souvenirs made in Costa Rica, and in our store you will find the best prices in Wood Souvenirs, as you may have noticed we have a wood souvenir factory too. 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

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.
