Escazù Things to Do

    I go every Saturday morning to the Escazú farmer's market (the 'feria'). It's about two blocks long, has marimba music, fruit, vegetable, flowers, a few other things. It starts at about 6 am and goes until nearly noon. Prices and quality are always better than the supermarket, and its a fun place to people watch.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gerardo Montoya’s Taller de Mascaras, on the road up to Pico Blanco, is the epitome of old Escazú. He follows the tradition of his grandfather, making the giant folkloric ‘payaso’ masks for local parades. If you let him know that you are coming, he may put on traditional music. For larger groups he can arrange to have dancers animate the giant costumes. He sometimes serves a delicious old time drink called chicha, and let you try on the costumes, or try your hand at making a mask. Best to call first.

    This is a nice place to meet for a light lunch. It's on a quiet side street with plenty of parking, and a green area. It's sunny and clean. You can sit inside near the dessert area or outside on a very pleasant covered patio. The broadband wi-fi is free and very fast and you can surf happily for hours. They are a dessert bakery, but I usually go to get a hot sandwich. They have many kinds of chocolate, marzipan, cakes, tarts and quiches, all much much better than the average bakery here. Service is fast and friendly. Sandwiches are all less than $8, and very good; salads average $6.50. Dessert prices vary widely.

    Favorite Dish: I like the salmon and caper panino sandwiches.
