If you're wondering what nice gift item you can bring back from your trip to Costa Rica, be sure to visit Biesanz Woodworks in Escazu while you are in the San Jose area. The shop features beautiful bowls, boxes and other items that are both useful and works of art. The wood colors, wood grains, and the finishes are beautiful! These gifts will be treasured for a lifetime. I've visited several times and have bought unique personal gifts, most recently jewelry boxes for bridesmaid gifts. The tour of the shop is interesting and the staff is friendly & helpful. If you're lucky, Mr. Biesanz may be onsite and give you a tour of the beautiful garden out back. Besides being an artisan, he is extremely knowledgeable about tropical and medicinal plants.
