Absolutely amazing surprise on the way, an experience which will really stay in your heart. But anyway, I very much think the same as other reviews here - it's worth it always when its on your way, not to take a detour. But if you are close, take your time and live the great fairytail experience in this little house!

My home is about 15 minutes from The Dreamer and so when we have friends visiting from the states we'll take them there to shop. When they have good inventory my friends usually find a little something to take back home with them but often times the inventory is lacking these days, but like my title review you won't really...

I completely agree with another review posted about this spot... It's cool, unique, small, but nonetheless interesting. "The Dreamer" has spent a great deal of time carving the roots from coffee trees into ghoulish faces and other peculiarities. If you're in the Orosi Valley, certainly check it out. A word of caution: if you're thinking of buying one of the... More

We were in Orosi and took the bus to get there, we stayed 5 min in this small house and then waited 30 minutes in the burning sun to get back home. If you have a car or if it's on your way, stop and have a look, but don't go all the way just for this. It's basically a... More

On our first trip to the Orosi Valley 4 years we passed up the House of the Dreamer. So, this time around we made it a priority to visit. A wonderfully unique house with an interesting history. This small two level house and "art gallery" is completely made of coffee tree material and the sculptures found in the art gallery... More

This is the workshop of two brothers, who are continuing to create the carvings like their father made. They carve coffee tree trunks into unique figures and faces. All carvings are 5 mil colones each. And the building itself is interesting with carvings, including the last supper, integrated into it. It's a nice stop on a nice drive thru a... More
