Fodor's Costa Rica 2014
Parque Central Review
Though this pocket of greenery resembles the central park of any other Costa Rican small town—the facade of its church is frequently compared to a wedding cake—the park's real attraction is the world's largest oxcart, constructed and brightly painted by longtime local factory, Taller Eloy Alfaro e Hijos (Eloy Alfaro and Sons Workshop) and enshrined in the Guinness Book of World Records. The work logs in at 18 meters (45 feet) and weighs 2 tons. Since no other country is attached to oxcarts quite like Costa Rica, we don't imagine that record will be broken anytime soon.
