A lovely little shop selling various Mexican handicrafts. Plenty of Day of the Dead artifacts. I also bought a colourful pair of harem pants.

We visited the Akumal location of this shop. Great selection of different items and most are locally made, as opposed to the stuff in the airports that is made in China.

The stuff here is unlike anything you will find at your typical souvenir shop. Prices are reasonable as these are not your run of the mill items. Service was friendly, they take credit cards if you wish to use them.
