The most famous attraction in the mountain town of Cachí is Casa del Soñador. Inside this log cabin are countless statuettes, all hand-carved in the old tradition of whittling gnarled coffee roots into religious figures, owls, and characters. The sons of famous Tico carver Macedonio Quesada run the shop and sell the relatively inexpensive sculptures as souvenirs to curious tourists who stop in.
