Overview

Luluberlu is a local Art Gallery and boutique in the centre of Puerto Viejo. It is the story of Lulu, a french artist famous for her mosaics, moving to Costa Rica. It's not just a place to shop, it's a place where you can discover the world of mosaics and art. The boutique with its workshop is definitely worth a visit. In the gallery you can purchase paintings of local Caribbean artist and national artists. Luluberlu offers a wide selection of handcrafted souvenirs, lamps, mosaics and jewellery. Besides art and souvenirs, you can find an exclusive collection of beachwear and bikinis created in the boutique and clothing of different national designers. Luluberlu is a versatile boutique where everyone can find something unique ! We now opened a restaurant in the garden of the gallery. So after shopping people can have a drink or eat something in our beautiful garden and admire the art pieces that are exposed in the back.

This is by far a top quality place to purchase authentic local artist creations at very reasonable prices. The owner is delightful and the staff are very friendly. You must make this a priority when shopping for local artistry!

I don't often review shops because, well, they're shops and everyone has different tastes but this place is not to be missed while shopping. Puerto Viejo doesn't have many shops to choose from as local/artistic shopping goes; that said, this was a gem of a...More

My favourite shop whenever I'm in town. It represents local artists and has a great selection of art, textiles, jewellery and clothing. A great place to pick up some unique gifts, a pretty sun dress or t-shirt or some amazingly cool unique home decor.

Best selection of local art in entire town. Nothing cheesy, cheap or typically tourist-pandering. Beautiful mosaics, jewelry, kids gifts, and home decor. Be sure to visit the enchanted backyard garden. Prices are fair for original art. Reasonable pricing and helpful staff.

Overpriced & not much of interest - better off going to sidewalk vendors, where cheaper & artists make more money.
