    Very nice shop with well selected variety of articles, carefully and tastefully created by indigenous inhabitants, which it determined not wide. The seller (Robert) also has a lot of knowledge of the products and the creators and the prices are (especially for Costa Rican concepts) is not high.

    Price is relatively higher than most local souvenir shops, but it has good placement and set up. The staff claimed it is fair trade and therefore there is no flexibility on pricing.

    A great place to learn about the traditions of Costa Rica. They support extraordinary projects that produce products with true Costa Rican identity. A place to learn, where they give a free tour that explains and tells the story of all products. A great place to learn about the traditions of Costa Rica.
