Leo and his wife are artists and very nice people who do make you feel at home. Be warned- the shop is well outside of the main Arenal Fortuna area and the selection is small.

We were recommended to this artisan shop by our hotel so we took a quick drive to get a few family gifts. It was much more than we expected. The husband and wife team greeted us with a fresh coconut and gave us a tour of the store and history of its beginnings. The store was loaded with local artisanal goods that were priced very reasonably which they make many themselves on property. The store is adjacent to their home and we saw they had many birds that live outside on their property who are essentially like their children. We played with the birds and had a ball with them for over an hour. They were such a highlight of our trip and a must if you're in the area.

The shop has a great selection of wood carvings and paintings at prices the same or cheaper than all the same shops in La Fortuna. The couple that owns the shop are extremely welcoming and offered a cold coconut. First time I had ever had one and it was delicious. They then offered us fresh fruit and showed us their Parrotts and parakeets. I bought most of my souvenirs there and do not regret it at all. You're best off buying from them and not the commercialized ones downtown.

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!
