Good friends whom are PV regulars told me about this store of handicrafts. I've purchased earrings, little Dia de los Muertos figures and small wooden painted hummingbirds. Staff will carefully wrap for travel.

Lucy's Cucu Cabaña just reopened in the same location it's been in for twenty-two years after extensive remodeling. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused anyone, but we are always trying to make it better.
