See beautiful ox carts, chairs, tables, and other wooden products made with passion and skill as you wander the site. Intricate, boldly colored ornaments capture the true spirit of the Caribbean, and the friendly craftsmen will happily answer your questions about their works. The ox carts made onsite are still manufactured using traditional techniques, keeping the same look they had when people used their distinctive designs to identify one another as they crossed paths. The souvenir shop offers a variety of equally beautiful wooden artworks, but of a more convenient size to carry.

Great for groups to visit! They have a cool tour of factory (you can also see artists painting typical hand-made pieces seen in Costa Rican culture), tourist shop with everything you may want to buy, and beautiful restaurant upstairs. Highly recommended!
