A haven for the arts since 2010, the Hidden Garden Art Gallery offers quality original art in many mediums. HG is the largest of its kind in Guanacaste, more than 60 artists on exhibit, and 15 rooms full of paintings, sculptures and diverse artistic expressions. The gallery has 3,500 square feet of wall space, and more than 400 pieces on display. Rooms are coordinated by styles, ranging from geometric abstraction, to typical art, to underwater images. The Gallery is also home to the permanent exhibits of our resident artist Carlos Hiller underwater scenes, Susan Adams, Rebeca Alvarado Soto and many more. Our location, designed with a marvelous architecture, is the perfect setting for our cultural center. Our mission is to strengthen and heighten local artists' works and share the beauty and culture of Costa Rica.

This is a neat space, with various rooms filled with pieces from many local artists. The owners are very nice and committed to presenting a wide array of art that really reflects the inspiration of CR. All price points. English speaking.

I've visited this gallery on two separate trips. There are a wide variety of artists and types of art in many price ranges from small souvenir to room cornerstone. The building is beautiful and the owners a gracious hosts, fun to talk to and know all about the artists and their personal stories and backgrounds. This is a must see!

I visited this unique gallery in July. I have visited galleries in Hawaii that impressed me, this amazing gallery was in that same realm. Beautiful works of art here. No pressure to buy! But you may find something that you can't live without!!! This is a must see!

This kind of hip spot in between Liberia and the airport has acade as part of the building with light lunches available. There are several rooms of paintings by local artists most of which are for sale well worth a couple of hours and a lunch stop.

We needed to kill some time before our flight home and this was just perfect. 7 or 8 rooms full of absolutely lovely art of all kinds. Don't be surprised if you start to consider an impulse buy of a $1500 piece. Curators were super friendly and attentive. We recommend this place.

Stopped on the way back to the airport as we had some time to kill. Glad we did as it was well worth it. We were met by the owners as we arrived and we're told about the history of the place and how they promote local artists in Costa Rica. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Recommended.
