I found The Glass Factory while looking for new things to do with my girls (10 and 12yrs). We come down every year and had never been to The Glass Factory. Needless to say, it was fascinating! The craftsmanship and art that goes into the work is astounding. It's so much fun to watch. We went around noon and had... More

My hotel told me to go here on a rainy day in Cabo and it was perfect! I walked from town, but it's a distance. Off the road out of town towards Todos Santos, turn at the hospital and continue....can't miss it. The building, itself, is beautiful. They sustained damage during the hurricane, but they've added a lot back since.... More

Nice to see local artisans at work, but if you've ever seen glass blowing you probably won't be surprised. Lots to choose from in the gift shop and pretty high prices for Mexico. Good visit since we had plenty of time and much of the rest of Cabo is still reeling from Hurricane Odile.

Great shopping and fun to watch the glass blowing right there. They make the glassware for all the local bars and restaurants.

I brought my sons to Vitrofusion last summer because of the hands on glass blowing they do there. Both of them had the opportunity to blow and learn how the glass was made. The true benefit for me as a mother is that they learned how labor intensive this work is, that glass we take for granted day to day.... More

It was amazing to see how they made the items and to learn about the process and the glass. Well worth the time to visit and to pick up some original dishware.

this was a very interesting place, authentic glass blowers who have learned this craft generation after generation. We got to see firsthand the production process. Although it was extremely hot being near the oven, the gift shop was well stocked with items to purchase, albeit pricey.

Wow, beautiful pieces!! So much to chose from. Made from recycled glass. We did find the same piece back our hotel shop that was cheaper than the factory, mmmm. No air conditioning so take a fan, water spray or whatever to cool yourself down, it will make browsing more enjoyable. We walked there from Club Cascadas, as it's only about... More

We've been to several areas in Mexico and this place had some unique designs/colors we hadn't seen before. Pricing was about average (maybe a little higher than normal) - keeping in mind we don't shop for our glass at the typical tourist spots. They were not blowing glass when we were there but we did not go on a tour... More
