Tico culture embraces the local Costa Ricans. The importance of family ties are deep rooted in Tico traditions and put this gentle, kind, friendly, and polite spirit into an elongated pod and open an art house to let the spirit free. This is the Tico Pod Art House & Gifts.
Legends passed down are an important part of Costa Rican spirituality. Each story is a connection between humans and nature. This art house displays local art made in Jaco and the neighbouring towns. The best way to understand the value of the gifts on display is to understand the local people. Take a look at the potters, mask makers, jewellers and other artisans found in Costa Rica and you will find the inner meaning behind the displays.
The owner Stewart, personally chose all the piece of art in his shop and can relate to the artists since he shared meals with them at home while they work. The shop also showcases local handicraft of tropical birds and tree dwelling animals. Banana earrings and pendants are embedded with gems are very special.
There is a big collection of jewellery, from silver to glass to turquoise, and wood and coconut. The Boruca Masks and woven purses come from the people staying in the mountains, leading a fascinating indigenous culture, isolated but self-sustaining and supplemented by craft making.
The newest addition to the store are the bright colourful paintings. There is quite a selection of small, medium and large prints and originals. Water colours, oils, acrylics, pastels and more. Also adorning the walls are beautiful Indian jaguar masks.
The products have been brought from the best workshops and studios around Costa Rice, thus they are all authentic. Finely crafted leather purses come in a range of beach colours.

For local and international art this a rare gem to find. Amazing art, artists, and wonderful staff. Go shop here. True Costa Rican experience
Good souvenirs but a little on the pricey side
Very cool shop. Unique items and local art. Definitely one of the nicest shops we visited. Found my memory of Costa Rica here - a painting of waves and surfers and a couple animal prints!! recommend it!
