This little shop may not have the most or largest variety of souvenirs, but it makes up for it in the authenticity department!
My husband and I are woodworkers and loved talking with the owners, comparing stories and artistry. It means so much more to buy art and souvenirs when you know the people and stories behind it.
A little off the beaten path, about 39 minutes out of La Fortuna, but it’s an easy drive through the countryside.
When you arrive, the owner will greet you with a chilled coconut (it’s free!) and will talk with you about he family-run business. He is rightly proud of his work-he makes some fantastically creative pieces.
Despite a bit of a language barrier, we were able to communicate with my broken Spanish and his broken English :) if you want a view of real Costa Rica and want to take home some genuine Costa Rican art, you have to stop by souvenir Leo.
