Namu Gallery

Learn about the tribes of Costa Rica

Many people don't realise that there are corners of Costa Rica still inhabited by descendants of the peoples who were here long before the arrival of the Spaniards. The art and crafts they create are the stock in trade of this gallery on Avenida 7 between Calles 5 and 7, whose owner Aisling French travels regularly to acquire pieces such as Boruca ceremonial masks, Bribrí canoes, Guaymí dolls, Chorotega pottery, Gautuso blankets, and Huétar carvings. There's also a section for young urban artists (some saved from the streets through specialised assistance programs). The International Festival of Arts is based here every spring.
