Tempisque River Guaitil Cultural Pottery Village

Tempisque River Guaitil Cultural Pottery Village . A great combination tour of nature and  Costa Rican culture!

Enjoy Tempisque River Guaitil Cultural Pottery Village with a scenic drive past papaya and melon fields where you will board motorized river canal boats and cruise the Tempisque River and the Palo Verde River where the two rivers converge.

Drive through towns with names you may have heard before – Los Angeles, Filadelfia, Santa Cruz – but are much different than the ones you may know. Quick stop for bathroom break, where bottled beverages may be purchased to take on the boat with you before we start our tour to the Tempisque River Guaitil Cultural Pottery Village

Scarlet MaCaws On Palo Verde Costa Rica

A trip along the Tempisque and Bebedero Rivers in motorized boats will take you to Palo Verde National Park where mangroves abound. The best bird watching for aquatic species if round right here, as the park is favored by many migratory birds as they escape the cold winters in North and South America. Look closely for the broad billed heron as they are nocturnal and sleep in the bushes along the river bank.

The area’s density gives it a rich mix of mammal, amphibian and reptile life, including the famous crocodiles. An expert naturalist guide will explain all the facets of the park, which simply by itself is a great oasis of Guanacaste’s plains.

After lunch you’ll visit Guaitil Pottery Village where you will learn the rich cultural history of this craft and watch as local artisans show you make pottery employing traditional methods that have been handed down for generations.

Today, the communities of Guaitil and the neighboring town of San Vicente are dedicated to preserving the Chorotega culture by making pottery using the same methods and materials as their ancestors.

Many families in the tiny village of Guaitil eke out a living by making pottery out of their home. Most of the residents are descendants of the Chorotega Indians who lived in western Costa Rica before the Spanish came to settle in the country.

Be sure to bring some money to purchase some of this beautiful artwork, which you are sure to enjoy for years.
