Chorotega pottery is a pre-Columbian tradition that survives in the villages of San Vicente and Guaitil. It is possible to buy the pottery directly from the artisans. It is also possible to buy this pottery in shops in Tamarindo and other tourist areas. In Tamarindo, there are even street vendors who will walk the beach and offer pottery, although fortunately they are polite and not aggressive like vendors in some countries.
Yesterday Sharon of Phoenix Daily Photo asked if we bought much pottery at the museum. I bought more than 20 items. We will use them for gifts for the colleagues who work for us in our office in Arizona. I hope none of them will read this post, as now it won't be a surprise.
