There is so much to see in this shop. Every nook and cranny has another piece of art that will catch your eye. My only problem is that I could not afford everything I wanted! I picked up several things but I definitely plan to return when I win the lottery so I can get all the other items I... More

We took three generations for New Years, two Birthdays and a Wedding Anniversary; Interestingly we all bought gifts for the celebrations at the Galeria Lamanai. We've been going to Akumal for 20+ years and we have been to the Galaria every trip! We have accumulated a lot of wonderful quality folk art pieces. I have some of my favorite jewelry... More

The art in this store ranges from a few dollars to thousands, and all still underpriced by US standards. This is where you go to bring back something really beautiful for your home, as well as really nice trinkets for others. No junk!

lovely gallery - a bit on the expensive side - parking around the gallery is difficult...prepare to pay for parking.

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
