What an Aladdin’s cave if souvenirs of Costa Rica. Great way to end the holiday with a bit of bartering and avoiding the airport prices!

We had an afternoon to kill in San Jose before our flights out and picked up some great souvenirs at this central art market. It's well worth a trip if you find yourself in the same situation.

Reviews that say the place is full of tourist tack--you're right! Reviews that say you can find amazing, locally produced souvenirs here--you're right! There is truly the full range of products, from cheesy toucan magnets and every single type of "Pura Vida" t-shirt to original work from artists throughout the country. Our favorite stall was the Artesanias Con Identidad Costa Rica, an artist's collective that features work from over 100 local artists. There are handmade coasters, small painting, crochet and needlework, stained glass, textiles, jewelry--so many one-of-a-kind items. The stall is located fairly deep in the market, but not hard to spot because it features items that no one else has. But no matter what your taste you will find it here!

Closes at 6pm! Crafts from around the country but few local artists actually making things here. Kids got souvenirs and gifts.

Had my phone stolen from my pocket in one instant. I was cornered in a stall, it was a customer, not a worker. Not a safe area at all.

The market is nice for a market and this one is more upscale with more defined “permanent” type traders. All the stuff is the same cheap junk.

Best place for souvenirs, lots of variety and stalls to choose from. We got coffee, t-shirts magnets, cups, wooden handiwork, paintings, key chains and jewelry. Can negotiate prices as well. It says closes at 8 but we went at 630 and lots of stalls had already closed, better to go in the morning or day.

I stumbled upon this place while walking back to my hotel. There are lots of beautiful hand-made stuffs to buy here and take home.

I was surprised to see that prices of goods are in US $ and they are quite expensive and not within my travel budget for souvenirs. For example, small embroidered sling bags are $20! I just looked around here and did not buy a thing.

Come here for the experience but be prepared to pay high prices!

I bought a bag from here and when it got wet, the color came out and stained EVERYTHING. There was pink everywhere. When I washed the bag in my shower to try to remove the dye, it continued in bucket loads. Everything I have purchased from this market was very cheaply made and fell apart very quickly. I’d recommend the central market over this one.

Probably the most expensive market I've ever been to, every stall sells the same things, t-shirts, stuffed toys, fridge magnets and all over priced and not negotiable

If you want quality, not your average gifts/souvenirs/art this is the place. Not all vendors spoke English but easy to communicate. Prices quoted in USD but I requested to pay in colognes which was obliged.
