Provincia de Puntarenas Shopping

  • Manuel Antonio Gifts

    Quepos Shopping

    Of course we had to buy the obligitory Pura Vida and Imperial Beer t-shirts. They range from $5.00 to $8.00 at the stands around Manuel Antonio (depending how much you want to haggle). The only reason I'm pointing this out is the exact same shirts were $24.00 at the airport.

  • Pastor Diaz - Main Street

    Jacó Shopping

    This shop seems to try hard to find unique items. Besides the wonder art (original and prints in a variety of mediums) it has Costa Rican made jewelry from many different artists. As well as indigenous masks & hand-woven purses from the Boruca Indians. Beautiful Costa Rican Leather wallets, purses and bags, hand made soaps and amazing wood bowls...

  • Aladdin

    Manuel Antonio Village Shopping

    We didn't shop here, but this place was in several of my photos. It was between the Buru Restaurant and the Inn on the Park - so right in the center of town. Their sign says that they are a "Unique Eco Boutique". They appear to have bags, hats and clothing

  • Roadside Stands

    Santa Teresa Shopping

    There's maybe 2 grocery stores, but check your change before you leave. Along the road you can buy all kinds of handmade trinkets - necklaces, bracelets, pipes, things like that. Some of it's good, some of it's junk. Don't go looking for a mall, you ain't gonna find it.

  • Pulperia or Mini Mart

    Carate Shopping

    The town of Carate consists of a dirt air strip, a couple tent camps / lodges and a pulperia. The Pulperia is the heart of town. For those that don’t know (because I had never heard the term before I got to Costa Rica) “pulperia” is a little neighborhood “mini-mart”. They sell snacks, sodas, water, beer, etc. It’s also the location where the...

  • T-Shirt Workshop over Cafe Del Mar

    Quepos Shopping

    Upstairs Cafe Del Mar, Amy welcome us in her workshop. She's very friendly and takes the time to chat (she wanted to know how we say "hand painted" in french"!) and explain her work. She has beautiful done t-shirts and she can make you one on demand in one afternoon if you find a design in her portfolio you like better. It took me a long time to...

  • Morpho Souvenir

    Jacó Shopping

    Morpho Souvenir is by far the largest souvenir store in Jaco. You cannot miss the large blue Morpho sign as you walk or drive down Ave. Pastor Diaz. The shop is about the size of four avenue shops long and is very brightly lit compared to other souvenir shops here. If you cannot find a souvenir or gift here, you will not find one anywhere....

    Over in Quepos, gift shops are everywhere. Well organised, well furnished, they proposed a great variety of quality and prices over a good choices of items. Woodcraft, papers, music, kitchen utensiles, jewelry, postcards, sculptures... The city size allows a great deal of various shops too, from library and hardware store to fishing supply and...

  • Bambu Souvenirs

    Jacó Shopping

    I really liked this shop for its unique souvenir gifts but more importantly for the art gallery in the back of the store. They have some beautiful paintings done by local arts that capture the beauty of the Costa Rica coast. Some of the art is worthy of contemplation like the tree growing out of the water. If you look closely at the back ground,...

  • Galaria Yara

    Quepos Shopping

    This place caught our eye. Paintings, jewelry, purses and scarves for sale. Very colorful and reasonable prices. I prefer to buy these type of items as souvenirs rather than the kitschy key chains or shot glasses most tourists buy for their family an friends. I actually prefer to buy edible items as souvenirs if I can.

  • Mot Mot Gallery

    Quepos Shopping

    We found this little shop almost by accident, walking around in Quepos. Around all those touristic gift shops, this one was somewhat special, offering higher quality goods (without being a real sophisticated art gallery). They ship all over the world. They have beautiful woods, all kind of color. Really! Yellows, reds, greens, blacks and purples....

  • Alquimia Souvenir

    Jacó Shopping

    Through all the shops I visited in Jaco, I didn't anything quite like what Alquimia Souvenir has. Hanging in front of the shop is several very colorfully painted bull skulls but what really caught my eye was the painted shark hanging from the ceiling. It is small but interesting. They have some very nice souvenirs here, some unique to this shop and...

  • The Costa Rica Coffee Experience

    Jacó Shopping

    The shop is really known the the large "Fruity Monkey Poop" sign. I actually thought that was the name of the store but it is not. The Costa Rica Coffee Experience is the name and they specialize in Costa Rican crafts from local artist. They also serve a variety of coffee, usually about 3 or 4 brews which you can sample before you buy. They also...

  • Beach House

    Jacó Shopping

    This is a rather new store, at least new from my visit last January 2015. It is small but nicely decorated. They have a wide variety of clothing, bathing suits, tee-shirts and souvenirs. The clothing is definitely geared more towards women. They have a small collection of wood bowls and hand woven bracelets. clothing, bathing suits and souvenirs.

  • Cacao Souvenir

    Jacó Shopping

    Cacao is a typical souvenir shop on Ave. Pastor Diaz. It is rather small but has all the items your would expect like mugs, magnets and shirts. Most of the clothing is geared toward women. The sales staff here (or at least when I was here) did not speak any English. Still a nice place to stop in and browse. They are open everyday from 10:00am to...

  • LimeCoral

    Jacó Shopping

    LimeCoral is a chain apparel surf shop through out Costa Rica. It is a cool shop with their brand of bathing suits and shirts. Their motto is "The Latin American Surf Brand." They have an assortment of surf boards and skateboards. However, what I liked was the assortment of balance boards that had unique drawings. Surfers use these to train for...

  • Farmacia Manantial

    Jacó Shopping

    This is a very convenient pharmacy located in the center of Jaco. I have stopped in on several occasions if I run out of toiletries or if I am not feeling well they are very helpful with medications available in Costa Rica that are the equivalent of what I would purchase in the Untied States. Medicine or toiletries. Fair prices.

  • Downtown Puntarenas

    One afternoon, the four of us ordered a taxi and took the short drive from the resort into Puntarenas. We left just before lunchtime and were back in just under 3 hours. It was nice to have the chance just to wander around a typical Costa Rican city - and it was not too busy because there were no cruise ships in at the time! We meandered about down...
