We stopped here to look for souvenirs and it was the perfect place for us! We found so many handmade gifts for our friends and family while we were here! The shop owner was so nice and had wonderfully unique designs that sold us right away. This is definitely our favorite shop in Rincon.

What a wonderful afternoon we spent with Elke making sea glass jewelry. I was looking for a more meaningful souvenir for my daughters, ages 9 and 12, than a key-ring or coconut head, and boy did I find the right place. Elke took us patiently through every step of making sea glass necklaces and anklets, and even an earring. She... More

Whenever I'm in Rincón I make a point to visit Tres Puertas. Elke, the owner, is very pleasant and has an extensive collection of hand made artwork and crafts for sale by numerous local artisans. The variety of offerings is extensive, from sea glass jewelry to wood carvings to hand made clothing and tote bags. I highly recommend stopping by!
