We were totally excited to have found Oscar's Galleria... everyone in my party got something, I got two of Oscar's own original paintings, which are stunning and novel works, I fell in love at first site.

I've been going to Costa Rica for many years...I am married to a Tica. How did i miss Oscar's gallery in the past? I din't know. Perhaps it's because, when I am in Quepos, I headto my favorite italian deli. Yes, i said italian deli. Lots of italian's in Quepos. Anyhow, getting back to Oscar...you will not regret going in...

My wife and I love gettting art pieces from the different places we travel to and we have never enjoyed our experience more than the one we had in Quepos at El O'scar's Galleria. We checked out all the galleries in the area between Quepos and Manuel Antonio and saw a lot of interesting works. However, with the exception of... More
