We toured this store on a walk around the plaza after lunch. My husband fell in love with the dog inside. We returned again to make some purchases of T-shirts and a stuffed Frog for souvenirs before we returned home. Prices are reasonable considering this is the closest shop for miles unless you go to Brasilito where there are a... More

This is a lovely shop where you can't get anything you want gift wise to take home. Really very friendly staff (including the owners dog). Definitely somewhere to stop and buy your gifts

Every time I am in Costa Rica I come here for my shopping. This is where I find everything and more. From cheap to expensive, from hippy to classic, from local to oriental, for tourist and locals... highly recommended.

Wow! I was so surprised to find a store like this in Playa Flamingo. There are so many wonderful things to find inside. Souvenirs of your stay in Costa Rica, gifts for family and friends back home, beach wear, local crafts... Great quality too. Staff seemed friendly and were very helpful. Well worth a visit if you're in Flamingo or... More

This stylishly furnished souvenir shop in Flamingo offers a huge variety of really interesting and tasteful souvenirs. When I was there, the shopowner - a nice german lady - helped me to find some extraordinary gifts for my family and friends. I can recommend this place without restriction.

Helpful staff, beautiful selection of local handicrafts - jewelry and t-shirts. They even offer licensed cuban cigars and precolombian jewelry. One of more tasteful shops in the area. I found that prices are much cheaper than inside the hotel. I only can recommend this shop ! *****

Great variety of gifts and beach wear. Flamingo seems like it has very limited shopping and this store offer the best selection in town. They have everything from T-shirts to bikinis to jewelry to handicrafts. Easy one stop shopping!

I walked in the shop to browse for a dress and one of the employees immediately started following me closely like I was going to rob the store. I understand there are shoplifting problems a lot at these type of shops, but she was being ridiculous! I walked out, but returned with my husband when I couldn't find any other... More
