The Chorotega, an indigenous culture from ancient times, were known for farming corn and practicing semi-democracy with elected leaders. They were skilled warriors, armed with padded cotton armor, bows and arrows, wooden swords, and flint knives, to defend themselves against neighboring tribes. They were also excellent hunters who would rest under trees and even climb them to find comfort. Interestingly, this all took place before the domestication of horses.

The secrets of their craft have been passed from generation to generation over the past 3,000 years, creating a centuries-old cultural bond that economically supports the community. Potters use local clays, raw materials and the same tools and techniques of their Chorotega ancestors to make beautiful works of art. In the artisan studios that ring Guaitil’s town park, you can find for sale clay pots, big bowls, pitchers, vases, plates, ornaments, animal-shaped flute whistles, and other crafts. Pottery sales are the main source of livelihood for residents. Students at Guaitil’s primary school are also taught the ancient ceramic art.
