Unique, hand picked gifts and art. Supporting many local Costa Rican artists and artisans. From fine art canvases, wood carvings and fine silver jewelry to folk art and hand-made soaps; you'll find a great selection of Costa Rican products (as well as few from other Central American artists). Authentic Boruca Indian masks from Costa Rica and Chorotega Indian Pottery. Beautiful leather bags and local jewelry.

This place has a nice variety of higher-end art, painitngs, jewelry, carvings and other quality aesthetic items. I appreciate a store like this amongst the typical cheap magnets and doo-dad souveneir shops.

They had some interesting souvaneers. The prices were a bit high for what they were, but if you want nicer things that are in the average airport style shop this is a good place to check out.

The art in this gallery separates itself from all the other touristy spots by offering higher end art from local artists. The selection is great, with some amazing pieces that would look awesome on anyone's wall or in any home. Would definitely recommend a visit...More
