Mention My Name
There is a great store in the Multi Plaza Shopping Mall, about a ten minute drive from the recovery facility, by the name of CONGO. Congo offers a great selection of Costa Rican crafts, mostly all handmade by local artisans.
I always recommend that patients shop there for their souvenirs. The things at Congo are hand picked by the shop owners. They have the best of the best stuff there. And, for the luxury of not having to shlep all over the place picking through tons of stuff that, before long, all start to look alike. You pay about 10% more overall. Believe me, it's worth it. They manage to find the coolest stuff...wood items, sculptures, ceramic items, paintings......all great quality stuff.
Anyway, here's the best part!!! if you mention my name or my website to either Jodi (the manager) or William (the owner) you will get a 10% discount on anything you buy there. So, you see? It all evens out in the end.
Congo is on the upper level of the Multi Plaza Mall. Their phone number if you want to call while you're in C.R. is 201-8017
By the way...I intend to add more stores to this list over time....who will give discounts to "Dr. Lev's people". Stay tuned.
Have fun shopping.
