This guy has to been put behind bars. Makes his living by stealing from people. We paid him a lot of money and he said he would send us the paintings. Ends up; he will send nothing and just sells it to another person. We...More

Great for finding different gifts but take them with you, do not send them as they may not arrive. Be sure to bargain as the price is flexible.

We had a very positive experience at Ubago gallery. The owner worked with us to find four pieces that we love, within our budget. We took the paintings home with us, and they were carefully rolled in a protective tube.

We went to this place with Overseas Adventure Travels (I'm not saying that they vouched for him, but they should certainly take any possible action to keep visitors away.) I just found this review today. Had I known in February 2013 when we went to...More

I bought 4 pieces of pottery at Galeria Ubago in May 2012. The Galeria does have a nice selection of pricier pottery. The owner Silvio Ubago gave me a discount on the pottery. He told me that they would ship the pottery to my address...More
