Mexican Handcrafts

At Mexican Handcrafts, your visit is both a shopping experience and a learning experience.

Citlali or Walter will always be in the store and they enjoy explaining the origins of their handcrafts. Sometimes you will find the artist while they are creating a piece in the studio. None of the handcrafts have 'Playa del Carmen' or 'Riviera Maya" written on them, as this is not a souvenir shop.
