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

The gallery has some good stuff, but the owner is a shady operator with zero credibility. So do not do business with him - if you have to please ensure everything is settled in store before you pay him. Because after you pay him, he...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.

Total scam here and the owner knows it from the second you walk in the door. I've attached pictures of my paid-for paintings that I've never seen again. To be clear, it's not a problem with the Nica mail service as paintings from other galleries...More

On first impressions this is a professional gallery, with nice art work. Silvio the American with a 'rich history of banking in Nicaragua' says all the right things. In reality, I spent $500 on 4 pieces of art. Silvio agreed to ship them for me...More

Silvio is a very gracious and knowledgeable merchant. His first price is quite high, but he bargains down easily. If you are naïve, you can overpay. Like I said, he is a merchant, not a shipping company. He will offer advice on shipping, but its...More

We had a good experience at Gallery Ubago. I read the other reviews so I was skeptical. The gallery is quite large so you will probably find something you will like. We bought several pieces at a very fair price. The owner helped us pack...More

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.
