Unique, hand picked gifts and art. Supporting many local Costa Rican artists and artisans. From fine art canvases, wood carvings and fine silver jewelry to folk art and hand-made soaps; you'll find a great selection of Costa Rican products (as well as few from other Central American artists). Authentic Boruca Indian masks from Costa Rica and Chorotega Indian Pottery. Beautiful leather bags and local jewelry.

I happened by this eclectic art shop almost by accident, but I am lucky I did because it had the most unique and varied pieces of art that I found in Jaco, all by local talent. I bought two stunning pieces--which will always remind me of my fond memories of Costa Rica. If you're an art collector or just someone... More

In Costa Rica, like most places, pretty much every gift shop has the same stuff ... but not Tico Pod. My boyfriend and I both found unique items that we really liked. The selection is great and the prices are reasonable. I think I spent ~$65 for a print, a nativity set, a vase, a bar of soap and a... More

Not sure what everyone is raving about. Same stuff as everyone else, higher prices. It's inside and air conditioned but other than that nothing special here.

my sister and I walked in, the staging of products was very inviting. Once we were in the store, there were so many nice items for gifts it was hard to narrow my choices down. I purchased two small bowls and some other things for my husband. The prices were very affordable and the lady helping me took extra time... More

I visited store after store selling the exact same items. This one had some unique items and more upscale. I got a lovely little sloth painting to remind me of our first family trip to Costa Rica.
