LULU BERLU

COSTA RICA by KRISS on 23 november 2015

There is an art shop in Puerto Viejo owned by a Belgian woman (whom we didn’t get to meet) and it’s called LULU BERLU.
The place is beautiful, outside and inside.
She displays artworks from local artists just like we used to do in Nerja.
She also sells some clothes and swimwear.
Everything is colorful, light, inviting, the assistant smiling and kind, you just want to look at everything !

Except the prices, where you will really ask yourself the three magical letters : WTF ? I think this is one you might be wondering many times in Costa Rica unfortunately because it is really that expensive ! And so is that cute little shop unfortunately, or we would have bought things (we did but we had to).
However, from our adventures in airports, my little one lost her bunny friend and was very very sad.
We promised we would get her a new friend in Puerto Viejo and couldn’t walk back from the offer when she fell in love for -Summer Flower- her toucan (she named it herself) which cost a flat $18 (if you pay in cash otherwise add a 14% tax if you pay by card).
Ok, ok it is hand-made in Costa Rica with recycled fabrics and all and perhaps it is organic, eco-friendly and helped the planet in some way but honestly how can people afford anything in here ?

Well, to stay on a positive review, you can always go there, have a look and enjoy all the beautiful things in the shop, there is no entrance fee.
Plus I think I did see a restaurant in the back, you have to enquire about that but the setting is very nice !
