Small souvenir shop with a great family. Almost everything is handmade by Leo and painted by his wife. They were both so nice. Leo took us around his property and showed us his garden and his beautiful collection of orchids. Great visit.

We enjoyed our time browsing around here. The fresh coconut was appreciated on a hot day. Purchased a few handmade/handpainted pieces. Definitely worth a stop. The owners are very nice.
