The Chocolate Monkey Gift Shop

Our Gift Shop is well known in the area for having a wide variety of gifts. Not only will you find T-Shirts, Hammocks and Jewelry, but also a beautiful selection of Costa Rican made Arts and Crafts. Our policy is to buy (as much as possible) from local artisans who work with local materials of a sustainable resource. For example, we buy jewelry from a woman's group in the local community of Tres Piedras. These women collect seeds and other natural materials from the rainforest to make the jewelry. Having the forest as a source of income has stimulated them to fight to protect their local natural environment.

Artesans from the Boruca Indigenous Reserve extract dyes from natural sources and use them to color cotton string which they then weave into a beautiful cloth. From the cloth they make unique and attractive carrying bags of many shapes and sizes. These and other Boruca products are an excellent example of sustainable arts and crafts.

Buying from us will help support local communities like Tres Piedras and the Boruca Reserve. As an integral part of the Path of Tapir Biological Corridor project ASANA works with many local communities to help develop groups like the women of Tres Piedras and the Boruca Artesans.
