    private residence: Locally produced wine

    by theo1006 Updated Jul 4, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We like a single glass of wine as a night cap. So when we saw the announcement 'wine for sale' on a private house, we rang the bell. Yes, they sell wine from Garita for CRC 2,500 a bottle.
    If you happen to pass through Garita town on road #3, you can by the same wine on the roadside for slightly less.

    What to buy: There is red, white and rosé, dry and sweet.

    Green Turtle Outlet: Souvenir Depot

    Green turtle

    It's the last day of your trip and you want to pack up on gifts for familly and friends (a little for yourself too), head for the turtle Depot in Alajuela. A big big big store filled to the top with gifts for everyone: hats, t-shirts, jewels, paintings, sculptures, mirrors, furnitures, kitchen utensiles, cofee, candy, papers, pens, books, crafts. I could go on and on!

    What to buy: Everything, althought it could be difficult to find that unique hand-crafted never-seen-before art piece. Everything else: go crazy!

    Quality is fair, but not every items are top-of-the-line.

    What to pay: The prices are very good compare to about any other places we've been too (can't speak for Sarchi though, never been).
