Has a fantastic assortment of colorful crafts. It is the largest presentation of artisan and craft ware in the country. The market occupies an entire city block connecting Avendida Central and Pan American Highway (Paseo Colon), beside the Museo Nacional de Costa Rica. It is covered with a roof, but otherwise opens to the breeze.
You’ll find a great range of beautiful wooden carvings: Costa Rican animals, masks, pre-Columbian figures, votives and deities. Native Boruca Ritual masks depict grinning, grimacing faces, or tranquil smiling Buddha–like expressions. Boruca is the indigenous group that forms the core of Costa Rica’s Native cultures.
