Biesanz Woodworks Reviews
I took my sons to Costa Rica, and we decided to spend a day doing things in San Juan. I found this woodshop online and we went to see it. The man greeted us at the door, and welcomed us in. He gave us... more »

The care taken here with the wood, and the extraordinary amount of time and attention that is required for Biesanz to stay at the top of their craft is nothing less than amazing. Only naturally fallen trees are used, so their work does not contribute to deforestation. They count 5 or 6 US presidents among their customers, yet many of their products are quite reasonably priced and of wonderful quality. I highly recommend a visit to Biesanz - for an educational visit as well as beautiful wood products.
I came by myself to Biesanz Woodworks and was met by a lovely man who took me on a tour of the botanical gardens where he explained the origin and age of the trees and plants they have, as well as their medicinal uses. He introduced me to Blakie, their rescue dog which absolutely loves visitors. Then we went to the wood workshop where the beautiful pieces are made. The gentlemen working there have been there for 30 years and have achieved complete mastery over creating these pieces. I really enjoyed my time here. I would recommend it to anyone coming through San Jose.
