Ceramics museum garden and oven

This is the garden area and oven behind the the Ecomuseuo de la Ceramica Chorotega. They have demonstrations showing how they make the pottery, and they also grow traditional herbs. Here is a link to the website for the ceramics museum.

San Vicente is a very small village, and I think it is great that they have a museum to display the traditions, and to help offer a market for the work fo the artisans. The museum opened in 2006. It is affiliated with the Museo Nacional de Costa Rica.

Many of the guide books will mention the pottery village of Guaitil a mile or so away, but they do not always include the smaller village of San Vicente or this fairly new ceramics museum.

This week we are showing photos of a remote area of Aututaki in the Cook Islands of the South Pacific on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
