Enjoy a day of shopping at Costa Rica’s most famous artisan village!
30 kilometers northwest of Resort Martino, in a valley whose slopes are richly planted with coffee trees, is the village of Sarchí. Sarchí has been famous for decades in Costa Rica for its fine handicrafts. The tradition has its roots at the beginning of the 19th century, when the first colorfully-painted oxcarts (carretas), with their large wooden wheels, were developed in the village. They are still to be seen in the fields of the Costa Rican highlands – usually drawn by tough cebú oxen and driven by old campesinos whose faces are tanned to the color of leather.
Shops in Sarchí Sur, the higher–lying part of town, sell handicrafts made of exotic tropical wood. The items range from musical instruments, chess boards and pieces, letter openers and jewelry boxes to salad bowls, rocking chairs, serving platters, miniature ox carts, statuettes and carved figures.
Leather goods are also sold and include belts, sandals, vests, hats and wallets. On weekends, Ticos who come up from cities mingle with the crowds, creating a mass of local and foreign visitors, filling Sarchi’s streets and shops to the point of bursting.
There is no problem when the comfortable rocking chair or colorful oxcart is too big to fit in a traveler’s luggage. Most shop’s offer a special service, packing and shipping bulky souvenirs to the buyer’s home address.

This is the tour of the dispute between the couple: she wants to go, he doesn’t, usually she wins.
Price per person ( based on a minimum of 2) $30-$50 Duration: 3-4 hours. Guests may go any time during the day.

• BOTH THE COSTA RICA ART SHOWROOM AND THE SHOPPING AT SARCHI TOUR CAN BE TAKEN AS A COMBINED TOUR •
