We stopped by the Beading Cooperative today. 4 or 5 women were working on beading projects and allowed us to leisurely shop without being hassled. That was a JOY to us, after being hounded to death by hawkers in town. We were able to pick...More
My sister and her friend had bragged about this place, so I was interesting in checking it out. My sister had a bracelet she bought there break, so we stopped to have them fix it. I bought a couple items while there. It was great...More
Shop for a good cause with your $ while also getting some beautiful jewelry. We bought gifts for 15 women and were proud to contribute to their hard work and talent. Reasonably priced and gorgeous work.

This place is on the south side of the island in the neighborhoods. These women make beautiful pieces of jewelry, headbands, purses. All items use the small beading technique and are very colorful. Prices are competitive to the downtown stores.

Sorry for late reply. Like others said depends where you are staying. We found Isla to be very safe. We took taxis for the first few days and then opted to rent a golf cart for 5 + days. We stayed in a condo that was located toward the south part of the island while we could walk, take taxis and even ride a bike if we bothered to find out where we could get one, we had 6 year old twins and found that renting the golf cart worked well as it gave us flexibility. We did not need to tell a taxi where we wanted to go, we could drive and stop where we wanted to. East coast is very lovely. Beading coop is towards Punta Sur, while you only need to visit this area once (Mango café is in this general area) if you are staying a while and like to move around a bit, we really enjoyed the road along the east coast rather than the one facing Cancun (West coast). Hope this helps. Enjoy your time on Isla!

I just saw your post! The bead coop is in La Gloria on the same piece of land as the Cruz Roja (Red Cross). Take the eastern Caribbean road past La Gloria and when you come to a divided road that goes east/west, (right before the new cemetery) turn right and go a couple of blocks and the cooperative will be on your right. If you go to our FB page, Isla Mujeres Women's Bead Coop, there is a map on the top of the page.
