This tour is a great combitation between 2 of the most visited regions in Costa Rica. The Poas Volcano and Sarchi Oxcart Factories.
Sarchi Norte and Sarchi Sur are the most famous craft center in Costa Rica.
The city has more than 200 stores and small factories that function as family businesses for woodworking. They produce wooden bowls, tableware, folding furniture, wooden and leather rocking chairs and a wide variety of souvenir craft items. The most popular items are the elaborately painted "ox carts" that traditionally transported coffee from the Central Valley to the port on the Pacific coast. Today it is the canton where the world's largest cart is located. The Sarchí furniture have an internationally recognized design and quality and are a true national icon

Fabrica de Carretas Eloy Alfaro
A national symbol of Costa Rica, the oxcart plays a key role in the country’s history, as they were used to transport coffee beans & other goods to nearby and faraway markets and ports. Starting in 1840’s most of the rural roads were very rough making the ox cart the sole means of transportation for families even though the trips could take weeks at times.
Highly ornate, these oxcarts are elegantly craved and are usually hand-painted with bright colors. The painting of the ox cart is a Costa Rican tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation. Today most of the ox carts in Costa Rica are used as ornate decoration as well as symbols of Costa Rica in celebrations and parades. The largest and oldest oxcart factory is also found in Sarchi. The Joaquin Chaverri Oxcart Factory was built in 1902, and is considered to be the birthplace of oxcart handicrafts in Costa Rica.
