Pura Vida Souvenirs

For attention-grabbing souvenirs and crafty mementos head to the Pura Vida Souvenirs store. Good variety and fair prices, plus a quirky bonus — peacocks in the garden! If you don't find exactly what your heart desires, check out the numerous small shops on the same street.


Carvings from polished coconut wood, colourful bead bracelets, and handmade ceramics are popular souvenirs that you can bring home from Costa Rica. Jewellery and skilfully crafted woven fabrics that will delight your friends and family can be bought at the various markets in the city centre. Hand-carved wooden figures, colourful hammocks and t-shirts with prints are among the most popular souvenirs from Costa Rica. You can pick them up at one of the many markets in the city centre or look for specialty shops in the area.
