We stopped here on our golf cart day. These women are really talented. The jewelry is beautiful and there is a huge selection. We really love supporting the local families and buying some jewelry was a great way to do just that.

My wife is 26 and has good taste in Jewelry. I understand this is a womans cooperative making Jewelry. We went so she could buy gifts for family and friends as well as help the local people out. We left empty handed as she did not care for a single piece in the small store. I only say this so... More

It is worth a trip to this hand crafted jewelry boutique and it helps these women make a living. Each piece of jewelry is unique and hand crafted. The prices are reasonable and it is fun to watch these women with their babies in tow as they bead and chat around the work table. Reminded me of the quilting parties... More

Nice little shop with all sorts of beaded works. To find it, keep left going south out of town. Turn right at the cemetery. It will be on hyour right next to a church.

I love the women cooperative, or Cooperativa de Mujeres, which work right there at the shop and with whom you can have a nice chat while shopping. I would definitely recommend visiting them to get your Xmas presents!!!

Make sure to stop by and visit the ladies here. They were very nice and continued to do their beadwork without interrupting while we browsed around the shop. They had beautiful things and I ended up leaving with a few pieces for myself and for gifts. Definitely make sure to take a few minutes to stop by.
