Review of Souvenir Leo

Reviewed 30 August 2017 via mobile

We absolutely loved the little souvenir shop. The owners were so helpful and sweet. We bought a bunch of things from them and they even gave me a free bracelet and a key change because we were staying at the Tree House. I can't rave enough about this souvenir shop, when I come back I will definitely visit them again.

We were staying at the Tree Houses Hotel last week and it was recommended to stop here since the wonderful couple who owns it did some of the signs and art at the Tree Houses. What a treat! We enjoyed visiting with the couple who owns it-the artists themselves-and found some beautiful hand painted artwork to bring back to various family members for gifts. They also showed us the beautiful wild parrots who live in their trees out back and let us and our children visit with the birds, who also hopped onto our fingers. Just a lovely couple and a highlight of our time in the area. Highly recommend!

While staying at the Tree House's they recommended Leo's for souvenirs. It is so much more than just a beautiful shop. Leo and Marisol warmly greeted us and brought us chilled coconuts with straws. Leo does all the wood and gourd cutting and Marisol does the painting. They both are quite the artists. We bought several fun and beautiful items and went back the next day for more. Marisol took a lot of time to make sure our purchases were wrapped and taped for our journey home. After shopping, Leo invited us in to their yard to see their beautiful flowers and birds. The little parrots just hang out in their bushes and trees and Leo sat them on our shoulders for pictures. This was much more than a trip to a gift shop, it was a very special experience. You will truly bring home authentic items made from Costa Rican materials by Costa Rican artists . Thank you to Tree Houses for sending us their way. Bill and Rindy, Spokane, WA

We asked to go here when staying at the Tree Houses. Cute shop and the couple was super nice! Loved going out and seeing her birds. Nice handmade souvenirs.

What a wonderful little souvenir shop. The owners are not pushy and instead treat you very much like family. They show you around their backyard which has several parrots, parakeets and countless different trees (avacado, palm, mango, etc.) and even let our 6 year old son hold the birds. So much more than just a souvenir shop. We highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the La Fortuna area.
