Loved walking through the Art House, it was a quick walk from my hotel and on the way into town. This offered quality art and not the typical mass produced souvenirs you would find in the shops in town. Beautiful paintings by local artists, carved sculptures, good value. I ended up buying a painting that we love. It's about 4'... More

We spent an hour looking through the gallery and finally decided on a small- and quite affordable- original watercolor by a local artist. We're thrilled to have this as our momento of our first trip to Costa Rica.

I was walking from a day trip in Santa Elena. I passed by this wonderful place. The building was striking and beautiful. I was able to tour the grounds, and there was all kinds of outdoor greenery. I stop in the gift shop, and the art inside was amazing. This place is worth the tour, and visit inside to see... More

I just loved this place! You can spend hours just examining the different things from masks, to jewellery to wood carvings. It has the best range and most interesting selection of items in the Monteverde area. Lots of original pieces. Locally owned by craft lovers you can see the care and love that has gone into making this special. Highly... More

We ended up purchasing a painting from the Art House and had it shipped to us in the US. Everything went perfectly and the painting arrived sooner than we had expected it, in perfect condition. We highly recommend the Art House.

While there are excellent arts and crafts at this store, they were far above our price range. Still we had fun looking at the merchandise and imagining what some of it might look like on our walls. We didn't buy anything, but the sales clerk kindly phoned a cab for us.
