Stopped on the way back to the airport as we had some time to kill. Glad we did as it was well worth it. We were met by the owners as we arrived and we're told about the history of the place and how they promote local artists in Costa Rica. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Recommended.

As an artist, living in Costa Rica, i was delighted to come across this huge & diverse gallery, just near the Daniel Oduber airport in Guanacaste. To my further surprise, many well known Costa Rican artists are represented here. Char & Greg, the gallery managers, were most cordial and I look forward to my next visit. It put a whole... More

This is a huge villa in a garden like setting. The house is filled with room after room of high quality local art. You can spend a lot of time looking at a variety of art and hang out for a while on the terrace. Easy going friendly bilingual owners. This is not a stuffy gallery. A place you will... More

Stopped by at the last minute but did get to see all the galleries. Staff was nice and the art interesting but many large pieces that would be difficult to carry.

I have been stopping in for years. The art is always changing. Food is good, people are nice. Near the airport so you can wait here for your friends arriving rather then at the airport, it's much nicer.

On one of our trips between Playas del Coco and Liberia, my wife spied a gallery along the side of the road and we turned around and stopped. We found a gem in the Hidden Garden Art Gallery! We were not really in the market for anything, but found two pieces we purchased. One is an oil on canvas of... More

Stopped on our way to Tamarindo and loved the art as well as the building. Many original pieces and mostly Costa Rican artists. Stop when in Liberia. It is worth a look!

We are pleased you enjoyed the art and the ambience of our tranquil surroundings. Though we have some international artists, all of the art is created in Costa Rica. We look forward to seeing you again! More

Great collection of art from Costa Rican artists. Many of which are ex-pats, but they capture the essence of the country. We bought a painting, but wanted more. Only the size of our suitcase stopped us.
