Souvenir Museum is a great place to buy gifts and mementos—and it is also a socially responsible enterprise providing local artists and artisans with an opportunity to improve their quality of life. If you're looking for a shopping experience with a purpose--or wish to give back to the local community--pick up a few handicrafts sold here, including utilitarian products and all kinds of decorative items that'll look great in your home (and serve as ideal conversation starters), all products with a story to share, curated by recognized and innovative processes that promote sustainability and fair trade. If you wish to keep your luggage light, ask to have your purchases shipped to your home address.

  • We went there on our last day in Costa Rica. Really a nice place to buy some good souvenirs. The owner knows a story behind every piece in his store and is willing to tell them. There is a fine curated selection of souvenirs from every region of the country. Focusing on fairtrade and sustainability. Especially a good place if you don’t like the usual souvenir stores with cheap stuff. Highly recommended!
  • Beautiful shop with highest quality handcrafted souvenirs I have seen around San Jose. Easy stop on the road to Volano Poas. Prices on ceramic mugs were much better than another nice shop. Display is like a museum—you can really appreciate the qualities of the items. Very friendly and welcoming staff.
