What Kinds of Gifts and Souvenirs Can I Find in Costa Rica?

In Costa Rica, you'll find amazing coffee, hand-crafted wooden bowls, figurines, jewelry boxes, t-shirts, colorful beach towels, sheets, paintings and more.

Souvenir shops are located in nearly every town, although they can vary considerably from place to place. The town of Sarchi is known for its excellent hand-crafted wooden products and furniture, as well as super-sized souvenir shops.

If you need to stock up right before your flight home, the SJO airport has a wide selection of shops, however, the prices are inflated. The LIR airport in Guanacaste is much smaller and offers very few choices in terms of last minute shopping. There are, however, shops along the road to the LIR airport.
