A haven for the arts since 2010, the Hidden Garden Art Gallery offers quality original art in many mediums. HG is the largest of its kind in Guanacaste, more than 60 artists on exhibit, and 15 rooms full of paintings, sculptures and diverse artistic expressions. The gallery has 3,500 square feet of wall space, and more than 400 pieces on display. Rooms are coordinated by styles, ranging from geometric abstraction, to typical art, to underwater images. The Gallery is also home to the permanent exhibits of our resident artist Carlos Hiller underwater scenes, Susan Adams, Rebeca Alvarado Soto and many more. Our location, designed with a marvelous architecture, is the perfect setting for our cultural center. Our mission is to strengthen and heighten local artists' works and share the beauty and culture of Costa Rica.

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.

Our family of four - two adults and two children stopped at the gallery on the way back to Potrero from Ricon de la Vieja. We discovered that the gallery wasn't open yet- with 1/2hr to spare we wondered the garden. We found specimen plants and trees as well as fountains and stone benches. Then a lady who lives in...
