Puerto Vallarta Cruise and Candlelight Dinner Show

439 reviews
Get out on the water of Banderas Bay to watch the sunset on this evening cruise from Puerto Vallarta. Rather than wandering the city streets to pick a restaurant or bar, have your entire evening planned. Enjoy the spectacular views (and open bar) on the way to Las Caletas, then savor a 3-course dinner and watch a memorable cultural show featuring dance and music.

Whenever we travel we’re always on the hunt for local folk art. Lucy’s is THE spot in Puerto Vallarta. For decades, she and her husband have traveled the country sourcing handmade arts and crafts. Their collection is beautiful (specializing in hand carved, hand painted Huichol items) and so reasonably priced. We ended up coming home with five different items. If you’re visiting in the next couple of months, take a stroll off the Malecon to their shop. They’re officially retiring and closing in a couple months. Pro tip: Be sure to grab one of Gil’s books while you’re there - he has a notorious sense of humour. They sold five in the time we were there.

Oh how sad we learned this trip that Lucy's is for sale and may not be in Zona Romantica next year. So many treasures we have purchased over the years from Lucy which we will always cherish. Not only beautiful but unique, handmade Mexican art. If you are planning a trip soon, make sure to visit this 5-Star store for a unique shopping experience. Even though we will miss Lucy and her store, we wish her and Gil the very best in their retirement years!

If you are tempted to visit Lucy's, do it NOW! I have been collecting beautiful handcrafted, unique, colorful, handmade Mexican art and craft pieces for about 20 years from this store. The quality of the pieces is a cut above most souvenir stores and is very reasonably priced. I say GO NOW because I was there last week and there is a sign in the window that Lucy is looking to sell the business and retire. A sale may or may not occur, so there may no longer be a Lucy's in the near future. Lucy and Gill are friendly people, as is everyone who works there. They are knowledgable about the pieces because they know all of the artists personally. When some people hear "art pieces" they think expensive... not so here. I have a collection of happy colorful little faces made from coconuts that are all unique, and cost about $7 each. Some of the hand carved and painted pieces I have purchased were more expensive because of the artistry and workmanship, but they still represent good value for the price. There is a wide range of prices and items. If you visit Puerto Vallarta and find yourself caught up in the beauty of the tropical colorful vibe, do take a little piece of that home with you from Lucy's!

Response from Lucy M, Owner at Lucy's CuCu Cabana
Responded Feb 7, 2020
Thank you for your wonderful review. I hope to find someone who wants to carry on our legacy. We are in our 26th year of collecting Mexican Folk art. We are known for the Oaxacan alebrijes, which are the hand carved, hand painted animals. Also, I do love the Coconut collection. It is amazing what the artisans can make from a coconut -Mermaids, hummingbirds, cats, suns, coco women decorated with different herbs- star anis, cat's claw, etc. that are colorfully painted. We also have coconut dolls, besides the mermaids, we have Mexican Jewish princess, quite precious. As we say," for great gifts that you don't want to give away". Come and shop at Lucy's and you can cheerfully decorate your home.
