  • Beautiful shop with local handcrafted items and art. Slightly pricey but one of the only ones that actually buy stuff from local tribes.
  • Overpriced and dishonest. Went to look at a traditional indigenous mask , ask to think about it and was asked to place credit card deposit for 20% down hold. Was planning to return to Jaco but after my trip diverted me and had to call for refund as was not returning and they do not ship. Stewart replies to my fb message finally that store policy is no refunds. There was no sign posted in the store, no mention or written on the receipt . He wrote that it would be soo time consuming and difficult to do a refund it would cost $25 for his time. Stay away from this place , they have nice things but can find in many other places for much less , even half price or less for most items.
