Fodor's Review

In a vintage farmhouse between San Vito and Wilson Botanical Garden, Finca Cántaros sells crafts by indigenous artisans from near and far, including charming calabash gourds painted by Maleku artists, and colorful molas (appliqué work) made by Kuna women from the San Blas Islands in Panama. The owner's own mixed-media prints celebrate tropical nature with watercolor, colored pencil, and hand-carved rubber blocks used as printing stamps. You can also find a great

selection of colorful, high-glaze ceramics from San José artists, as well as Sibú artisanal chocolates. Profits help support the adjacent free lending library, where English classes are also held. Walk bird-filled nature trails around a lake behind the shop and explore an indigenous archaeological site.
