Biesanz Woodworks

Singular crafts out in Escazú

About eight kilometres (five miles) west of San José's historic core, the well-heeled Escazú district is of interest to visitors especially because of this showroom, which specialises in various items of woodwork such as boxes, combs, and bowls — some of them one of a kind. You can also visit the workshop, where they'll explain the wordworking process and let you watch artisans do their thing. Right nearby is a pretty lake, a tree nursery, and a botanical garden.
