Jaime Koss is a one-of-a-kind human being and artist. You must visit this place during your travels. A life long artist with beautiful pieces of art and very reasonable priced. Must see his ocean front studio.

Mr Koss is wonderful. Whenever we chat with him we learn something. His pictures have beautiful vivid colors. Each one's meaning is sometimes a personal experience. It is a short walk but well worth the visit.

We stopped in as we were walking down the beach. Interesting art and a proprietor who will take time to show you his work. South on the beach about ten minutes from town. Nice destination for an outing.
