Worth walking through but did not buy anything. Lots of jewellery and art to choose from. Very close to Lol Ha and Akumal Beach.

The focus is on local arts and artists so you'll find unique paintings, pottery, carvings, and individually painted journals, etc. I also liked their authentic Oaxacan animal art. It's right on the beach not far from the main gate.

Products seem like they are artisan quality but when you ask the proprietor any questions, he is snippy with tourist and really doesn't answer questions. He has a take it or leave it attitude with tourists, I chose the later.

Best selection of quality folk art in Akumal, and not really all that expensive. People working here are usually very pleasant. Can be hard to find open.
