Fodor's Review

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 can be found in Sarchí's parque central. The work—locals refer to it as simply La Carreta (the oxcart)—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.
