An interesting exposure to souvenir production. You'll see some of their products around the tourist shops but not all of them. Not a sweat shop, it seems like the employees work in a nice environment. The collection of souvenirs is out of this world. Anything and everything that can be made out of wood is in the store. It's a... More

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

Well we paid $40 for a round trip shuttle to this place because we go home tomorrow and we needed gifts. Everything is so overpriced in Costa Rica we were looking for a deal of some kind. We did not find it. We paid too much. We ended up going to walmart which i hate just so we could get... 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
