  • 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 very nice place, with products of excellent quality, a unique service: a tour in which explain you how the product, has been designed by who has been designed and how it will impact the community purchase that you do; recommended 100%

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.
