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.

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.

One of the highlights of this gallery/store was its colourful, cheery, eclectic atmosphere - we actually took pics of their decor, we liked it so much! Some items seemed a but overpriced (especially the clothing) but I found some nice souvenirs that didn't break the...More

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

There is a decent range of pricing for both artwork and clothing. We bought a painting done on banana leaf paper for USD25. They have a range of souvenirs, knick-knacks, jewellery, paintings, clothing, swimwear and various other bits and pieces like mirrors and bags. The...More

Maybe the best place to find unique souvenirs. They have everything from silver jewelry, bag packs and lamps to bikinis. Prices are also reasonable. My girlfriend found pretty dress and we both found souvenirs to our family and friends.

The shop is not a shop...when you enter Luluberlu, you enter another world. Lady or gentleman, you will start dreaming about that original Panama hat or the painting from a local artist. Do not miss entering this new planet...
