A bumpy road (Mahogany Rd.) in the rain forest leads you to Leap. We had so much fun looking around. You have to really look because there is stuff everywhere. At first glance you will wonder if it was worth it but for the short...More

We visited the workshop on 02/21/17 and truly enjoyed our time. Vincent was at an appointment but his wife, Kettely, showed us around. She is delightful. The pieces were unique and beautiful. We believe the prices to be reasonable. We are not into the traditional...More

A very fun outing and beautiful drive through the rainforest. Gorgeous, picturesque trees once you get to the property. Huge, open-air workshop piled with jumbles of raw wood (mahogany, saman & thibet/tibet) and rough slabs. Scattered throughout you'll find serving boards, clocks, a few small...More

While driving along Mahogany Road, we saw a small sign on a tree "advertising" The Leap (also called The Shop). Interesting drive up the driveway on a dirt road. Our 2-wheel drive rental car handled it just fine. Don't expect a store or gallery-type setting....More

Everyone else's reviews are pretty spot on and so why reinvent the wheel. I am only here to tell everyone to have cash. I am 99% sure they don't take plastic and so make sure to take cash with you. While everything IS reasonably priced,...More

This place is well off the beaten path, but if you want true homemade island art, you must visit. It's a dusty, old workshop turning out amazing pieces of art from fallen Mahogany trees. The wood artist gave us a personal tour and showed us...More
