Leo’s was recommended to us by our hosts at the Treehouses Hotel and we were not disappointed. A friendly, welcoming place that offers free coconut milk. The owner was accommodating and we left with our original art in hand. Definitely recommend.

Leo and his wife are artists and very nice people who do make you feel at home. Be warned- the shop is well outside of the main Arenal Fortuna area and the selection is small.
