Thank you for your review.We love the artesania that the Oaxacans have to offer with their colorfully painted animals.The alebrijes are such a joyful art for us to enjoy.
I love the Abalone earrings, especially those with the 3 little dangles, beautiful and elegant.
Wonderfully curated collection of local art and crafts. The owner is knowledgeable, friendly and funny. Really enjoyed chatting with her and learning about the pieces they sell. This is not the trinkets you find at all the tourist trap vendors along the Malecon. Unique, beautiful...More

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.

No we don not have a website, but plan to in the near future. Our webmaster just had a kidney replacement and it will be a while before he's ready to work again. To our valued clients who come to Vallarta during the low season, we are sorry that we're not there to be of service. But we have to close every summer to go on our buying trip. No buying trip, no great stuff to sell. We are re-opening for the season on Monday, October 26. Look forward to seeing everyone. Thanks, Lucy
