The experience was fantastic. The workers were very entertaining. They let the audience participate. The facility was beautiful with all the glass windows & the back room is amazing. I bought lots of things to take home-turtles, whales. Just beautiful art & talented people. Amazing how fast they are!

The glass factory was one of the first business to be established in Cabo. It is still an important contributor to the local economy and supplies much of the glass used in the resorts - both functional and decorative. The shop has an amazing stock of sturdy glassware as well an beautiful vases, bowls, and figurines. Ship the tourist schlock... More

Our tour of Cabos San Lucas included a trip to the Glass Blowing factory. They use recycled glass - family business, We had front row seat and were shown step by step how they make a lovely glass fish. This would be great if you had kids with you. It is a simple factory but what they make is wonderful.... More

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.
