Miralo is a unique shop with high-quality hand-made art and gifts from all over Mexico - from traditional talavera pottery to modern minimalist ceramics. We shop here every time we travel to Puerto Vallarta for gifts to take home. Rodolfo continues to create beautiful hand-made mosaic mirrors and has added mosaic "paintings" and clay busts. Guests in our home always... More

Miralo is a wonderful store featuring mosaic art made on the premises along with unique gift ware hand picked by the owners, Bud and Rodolfo, from their Mexican travels. The store is combined with Rodolfo's mosaic studio, where he is busy at work creating mosaic mirrors and art pieces. Mosaic demonstrations and workshops are available. I attended a workshop and...

This is not your typical blanket, sombrero, or factory made goods store. This is real art created by Mexican artists. Looking for something unique...this is the place. This was a new find for us and we are excited! We need to go home and do some measuring and were told that we can, receive by email, a PowerPoint program showing... More

We have walked away from here on a few occasions with some of Rodolfo's mosaic-trimmed mirrors and glass jewellery. We love his aesthetic and would probably buy more if we had more time and money!

We were pleasantly surprised when we found this store. The selection was beautiful and we found a great picture frame and a bowl. He had a clearance rack as well with really, really nice items. He was super helpful and friendly. It is very close to the famous church so if you are visiting the church, look this shop up.

With an early December visit to Puerto Vallarta, we were looking for some holiday gift items, and Miralo's quality, selection, and friendly vibe were a welcome discovery.

We visit Miralo every time we're in Puerto Vallarta and are always pleasantly surprised by the terrific assortment of artwork and gifts for sale and the very congenial staff. It is a welcome change from the tacky, pushy shops that one often finds in the touristy areas of PV.

Without missing a heart beat Rodolpho continued to encourage me to forge on ......the next day was... More

Took a second 4-day mosaic class with Rudolfo during last year's trip to Puerto Vallarta. Rudolfo is wonderfully talented in his art and is a great instructor - very flexible and engaged with individual help for his students. I'm really pleased with my second stained glass mosaic. Classes provided a great break from spending every day at the beach and... More

Would never go to Puerto Vallarta without shopping at Miralo. Very unique one-of-a-kind art pieces that are functional. A wonderful shopping experience.
