Fodor's Review

The area's finest arts and crafts are displayed in this impressive shop, including exquisitely detailed bird carvings made by a family in nearby Rincón; mirrors and trivets made by a San José mosaic artist; and indigenous crafts, including mola appliqué work, Boruca carved masks, and real bows and arrows. A gallery features mixed-media nature paintings. The shop is famous for local artisan Karen Herrera's exquisite glass-bead jewelry and miniature glass animals. There's an excellent selection of natural-history field guides and books here, too. For a sweet treat, there is locally made organic chocolate and Luna Jade ice cream and sorbet at the store's chic, new, open-air lounge.
