Beautiful swimwear, in love!

I absolutely love this store and my swimwear by Lis. She is a talented designer with an eye for true beauty. I love supporting locals, especially when they're as wonderful as Lis. Every time I walk in she is working hard on her next piece. The prices are amazing for the kind of work she does. I love the quality of my suit.
If you're in Coco do not pass this shop up! You'll be sure to find something beautiful and unique from Costa Rica. Thank you Lis!!!

I always like to support local business, but even more, support quality and creativity. Lis Umana owns Lis Umana Beachwear, located in the main road of Playas del Coco. The minute you walk in her store, you inmediately fall in love with all the unique pieces that she has designed. She will give you an honest answer of what suits your body and design something just for you in case she doesnt have the piece at that moment. And she buys the prints for the bikinis from very exclusive places to guarantee quality... I love it. The day I went to her store I end up owening 3 unique bikinis. Would totally recommend her store to any women!!!

I recently returned from a trip to Costa Rica. We visited Playas Coco to shop for bikinis. I went to numerous stores and found nothing until the very last shop... LisUmana Beachwear. I almost missed it, but so glad I found it. Was so impressed with the quality and the reasonable price point. All made to measure and great if your looking for something specific and need something custom made. You can also mix and match the tops and bottoms which I love. I've included a picture below.

Lisbeth Umana Espinoza is a swim wear and dress designer located in Playas del Coco, Costa Rica. I purchased two designed and hand made swim suits by Lis that fit so well I would have purchased more.
Her natural ability as a young designer is evident in the each piece she creates. Her prices are reasonable and fair. I have a personal belief that certain items, especially swim wear, the fit and design is most important because it has to do so much with so little material. Lis has this natural talent, understanding how the mechanics of structuring a bathing suit to fit perfectly. She explained to me the reason why a bathing suit bottom, when wet, sags at the back, and then when dry, snaps back. She found a way to counter this.

I left her small shop with an order for another top. She hand creates each piece she designs herself with confidence because she believes in what she does. Since I am from the US, I can only order through FaceBook until I return next year. I sense success will find Lis. Until then, I will continue to purchase from her with confidence, be it on line or from her shop in Coco Beach, Costa Rica.

If you find yourself in Playas del Coco, Costa Rica, please stop in and see this gem of a shop I found.

Great Swim Wear at Lis Umana’s Beach Wear Boutique.
Mar 2015 • Friends
I have been searching for a - modest- bikini for sometime with no luck. During our walk back from downtown - Playas del Coco - we stopped at the Java Coffee Shop and I noticed a mannequin with a bikini on the second level …...so up I went, and found Lis Umana’s Beach Wear Boutique. I met Lis the owner, designer, and seamstress. The boutique features ready made mix and match bikini bottoms and tops, along with cover-ups and other beach wear. Since I had not worn a bikini in about 30 years, I was concerned about side coverage and the bottoms. Lis’ swimwear fit perfectly. I decided on two suits and after discussing the bottom side coverage, Lis offer to make a bottom with more coverage and completed it in three days. I now have two fitted sets that I feel very comfortable wearing. Lis' shop was a great find.
