A charming shop in the colonial center of El Hatillo, it has really quality home decor and Venezuelan specialities. A mix between a store and a museum, parts of the store have different designs to reflect the different cultural areas of Venezuela: the Andes, the Coast, the Llanos (Orinoco basin), and Amazonia. There are material culture artifacts from each region, such as ponchos, hammocks, and baskets, pottery. They also sell Venezuelan chocolate, known as some of the best in the world. They have a coffee shop next door as well.
Unlike downtown Caracas, it is safe to stroll around in El Hatillo during the day. Definitely a nice escape from the hectic city.

“best Venezuelahas to offer”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

I had to travel to Caracas 2 times last year(not something I looked forward to nor recommend its a very expensive and dangerous city with no redeeming factors!)
but one day I went to el Hatillo where Hannsi was located
They had the best by far of any handicrafts I ever saw in the country. I regret not having bought more statues of Bolivar and Chavez(all decked out in army fatigues!)
The town is worth a short visit definitely better than staying in the cess pool of Caracas!
