As a Canadian tourist and artist, I love to collect 3 dimension artwork from other countries. The Lamanai Gallery was loaded with beautiful local artist's work, quality work, unique, funny and easy to take home. I purchased a beautiful wooden heart and a wood mask and we love our treasures. The service was excellent, knowledgeable, warm, not pushy. Will go... More

We recently spent a delightful week in Akumal, Mexico. One of the unexpected pleasures we experienced was an art gallery, Galeria Lamanai, located a little back from Akumal Bay. Galeria Lamanai is, unfortunately, still a hidden treasure. There is very little parking adjacent to the Galeria and, unless you are on foot and come upon the Galeria by chance, you... More

At first thought it was a bit pricey but then read up about the artists and looked at the work going into each piece...not overpriced, it's a gallery not a gift shop. Although there are some good pieces that would make nice gifts. Worth a visit just to browse.

I recently had lunch at one of the restaurants on Akumal Beach and noticed a little gift shop behind it. At first I wasn't going to go in, but then changed my mind. SO GLAD I DID!!!! The art work is top notch and BEAUTIFUL!! The colors are so vivid. Some people have said the items are a little costly,... More

Went to this gift shop while visiting Akumal beach for the day. It's quite small, but does offer a lot of choice inside, plus you get a 10% discount if you pay in cash. There are many things to choose from, such as wood carvings, jewellery, masks, paintings etc. The only thing I was disappointed with, was the pricing of... More

The quality of the merchandise in Galeria Lamanai is superb. We visited twice during our Akumal stay and bought artwork, crafts and jewelry. The decision making was the hard part. And the staff is a bonus–friendly, smart, knowledgeable people on every visit. Don't miss this shop!

Have been to Akumal Beach three times and won't leave without visiting Galeria Lamanai. This shop has very unique crafted items that you do not find in other shops in Mexico. Each time I have visited I have bought something. The service was great and the shop keeper was informative about the different artists and very pleasant. A visit to... More

I just got back from my trip to Akumal and Galeria Lamanai was my last stop! I was looking for a little gift to bring back home and my husband told me he saw another shop for us to go to. So we went in I fell in love with this absolutely gorgeous cross! I was going in between this... More
