  • Cute little shop and museum. The staff offered a brief and simple explanation of the fair trade goods offered. This is an excellent fair trade artisan shop where you can also read about and learn about some of the indigenous peoples of Costa Rica.
  • We went here on our last day of our holiday. The employees are very friendly and explained a lot about their products. We even met someone from the village where the masks were made. They are fair trade so the original artists will receive the money for their products. You should definately visit this place!
