Maya Bags

Located just two buildings to the right of Tropic Air, this unique handbag shop was created with the idea of empowering local women to design and create accessories inspired by the ancient Mayan people and local nature. Impoverished local women are trained in the art of design and able to earn a living selling their bags.

This shop features a line of hand-crafted handbags in all shapes, sizes, and styles, as well as other accessories such as hand-woven pillows, coasters, and Mayan baskets.

Offering high end fashion items that have hand crafted using the traditional skills of back strap hand loom weaving, basketry and hand embroidery, their top selling items are the gypsy souvenir bag, purses, fitness bags, and home decor.
