Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
Souvenir Museum isn't just a great place to buy gifts and mementos--it's also a socially responsible enterprise providing local artists and artisans with a way to make a living. If you're looking for a shopping experience with a purpose--or wish to give back to the local community--pick up a few handicrafts sold here, including all kinds of decorative items that'll look great in your home (and serve as ideal conversation starters). If you wish to keep your luggage light, ask to have your purchases shipped to your home address.

  • A great place to learn about the traditions of Costa Rica. They support extraordinary projects that produce products with true Costa Rican identity.
