My wife and I stop in here each time we go to Puerto Vallarta. It is fun to just walk around and just enjoy the indian craftsmanship. Since we usually list in December she picks up a few hand crafted Christmas ornaments for gifts.

I've been to Puerto Vallarta many times and have visited many stores, but this gem is my new favorite. I collect Mexican handicrafts, and this store had fine representations of so many different items--Day of the Dead, Oaxacan painted wood sculptures, Huichol beaded items, and...More
