Watching people create amazing art in just minutes using recycled glass bottles. The pieces that are made in the factory are sold everywhere and are very much original and hand-crafted. The yard outside is piled up with old empty bottles that are melted down and formed into so many new items.

This place is so cool. I have seen glass blowing demonstrations before, however, this one is in a league of its own. They asked the audience what we would like them to make. Once a suggestion was given from the audience (a bird) they wasted no time and started their demonstration. Not only did they make a bird they made... More

1 of my friends told me that if we went to Cabo to make sure you go to the glass factory. I was not disappointed. What a great place to see 1st hand how the glass figurines, animals, are made by hand.

I found the glass blowing demonstration interesting. Their glass products were pleasant enough, but not to my taste. There is nothing exceptional about the Glass Factory, but if you have nothing better to do...

I was part of a group that was taken to The Glass Factory to shop and watch the glass blowing demonstration. It was interesting but the style of glassware in the store wasn't my style so unfortunately I did not buy anything. I had hoped to find something but am not one to buy something just because. However, MANY (and... More

We were on a guided tour off our cruise ship and this was our last stop. The demonstration was neat to watch. It's amazing how they can craft all the figures out of molten glass.

The glass factory is a great experience. Talented artists blowing glass and they provide a fun commentary. The offerings for purchase range from drinking glasses to ornaments to beautiful vases. A wonderful place for gifts and unique souvenirs.

My husband and I enjoyed watching the craftsmen making a turtle with a bottle of tequila. There weren't enough chairs for our fairly large tour group, so I had to stand up. They explained how long it takes a person to be able to actually do the glass blowing. The heat from the glass is incredible and literally burned the... More
