La Casona Market

Crafts from all over Central America

San José street vendors are a lot more laid back than many other places in Latin America, and La Casona is a perfect example. Located on Calle Central just up the street from the Parque Central, it's a kind of market which brings together vendors specialising in crafts from throughout Central America. Very nice to stroll and browse its selections of various items such as jewelry, wooden boxes, and textiles. You'll find, for example, Guatemalan bags and quilts, Salvadoran hammocks, Panamanian mola textiles, and traditional Nicaraguan pottery. Both quality and prices vary widely, but very worthwhile indeed. Open daily 9 am to 7 pm.
