Laura, the owner does everything she can to help you. She personalised 3 gifts for me. Worked afterhours, was always in for a chat and even shared a drink with me. Visiting this store was really fun and you can find everything here. If you are in Cuenca, jou have to visit. You can also send your postcarts and packets here. I sended a few postcarts during the protest and they havent arrived yet. I send a few later and they all arrived. I also send a gift to my boyfriend and he loved it!

We stopped here today and bought several items to take home. Laura has a fantastic selection of items from all over Ecuador, all reasonably priced. But the real gem of this store is Laura, the owner. She is lovely and kind and so enjoyable to deal with. She was so helpful and knowledgeable!! It would have been nice to just sit down with her and a cup of tea and chat for the afternoon...

Very friendly owners and a lot of souveniers! The shop is close to the center of the city so that is ideal!

The best artisan souvenirs and gifts we found in Cuenca is Galápagos Artesanías. Laura, the owner, is delightful. Her items come from all over Ecuador, and they’re beautiful (and beautifully made) and very reasonably priced. Her shop isn’t located in one of the plazas, but it’s not a long walk from them. Visiting Laura was one of the highlights of my trip. Her warmth is infectious.

We went to this store after checking the Tripadvisor review. I had an injury to my left ankle since our trip to thd Caja NP on the previous day and it was not fun to go up to the second floor of the building where the store is. I had to sit on a chair for rest before starting a browse. The owner came to me and asked me if I was ok. As soon as she found out about my injury she offered to make a drink made with aloe vera to help to reduce the inflammation. It didn't matter to me if it would work or not but her generosity and hospitality were so priceless. After she made me the drink she told me lots about Inca/Ecuadorian culture. My wife, my sister in-law and I stayed over 45 minutes at the store. In the end we bought some stuff from her and the price was totally reasonable. I absolutely recommend her and her store for everyone.
