Lonely Planet review

Don cute felt shoes before entering this bookstore, with its polished-wood Cerro Plano expanse of local arts and crafts, including some intricate batik. There are also books about the region, in particular natural history, in English and Spanish, plus lots of excellent Costa Rican and Central American music. The small amphi-theater outside the bookstore has regular theater and musical performances – be on the lookout for posters advertising events.
