  • Area of 300 square meters, highlights the importance of coffee and water in the economic, social life of Costa Rican campesino from the colonial period. The casona is 130 years old. Represents the Customs: houses of wattle and daub, candle holders, candles for lighting, wood stove use, use of pylons and more. The surroundings of the Museum are planted trees of plums, annatto, coffee cups, cas, Queen of the night. In the restaurant the food is traditional, pozol, pot of beef, plantain cheese, recommended peasant lunch. Their prices range from 800 colones to 3000 colones. The Museum does not work during the week. But if there is a group of 15 people + 506 22601619 contacts 22773855 is important not to leave out our indigenous heritage. When visiting the Museum I remembered the grandparents House, the smell of roast Tamale, the flowers of the coffee, my grandma prayers and tales of witches and ghosts of the grandfather. The Museum is open Sundays from 10 am to 4 pm. It is no charge to enter. If they come from San Jose can use public transport quick Heredian and ask let them National University there take a taxi.

  • This time went with a couple who have a girl and a boy and it was amazing to see it while they went running from here to there, playing with the traditional games that are at free disposal. Meanwhile, audultas people speak and eat under the shade of a tree. The attention was splendid and simple, as always. And don Roy, the Guide, wonderful. Only took me to hens, I don't know why, they are no longer.
