What travelers are saying
- We stopped here after visiting the town of Tulum and found it to be much more friendly and a much better variety of shops. The vendors were friendly and were willing to barter with you, some are a bit pushy but not as bad as other places in the area. Got some nice things and had lunch.Written March 2, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- While shopping in Tulum, we visited this little shop. The walls are lined with shelves full of framed hand painted feathers of all sorts. The lady that was there was super nice and personable and was willing to bargain with us. We ended up leaving with a very special gift for my mother. Worth taking a look at!!Written June 13, 2017This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- The place is amazing from an architectural perspective.
But the entry fee is too high for such a small place.
You are not allowed to take photos with your camera. Only with your phone. Very annoying as I like to take high resolution photos on my vacations. I'm not a professional photographer that sells their photos!Written November 6, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The Slow Food Farmers Market was definitely needed here in Tulum since it is so hard to get fresh and organic produce in this area.
I love that it is not only a market but also a community event where people present their sustainable projects and learn from each other.
The live music always adds to the positive vibe.Written February 25, 2020
- Seriously. I can not stress this enough to you. I fell in love with the place before I even walked in. A piece of art caught my eye that was sitting out front, and I very-quickly realized that there was a specific vibe to the place that just screamed "made-with-love". It was the first store out of the many I had ventured through that made me audibly made me say "WOW!!"..... I mean, there had been many beautiful things that I had seen, but you quickly realize you will find many of the same things in many of the different stores.
This one was much different, I could clearly tell.
The artist, who's name is Dani Tahis, was sitting inside painting some of her works as I walked in. She spoke very reasonable English (although not fluently), had THE MOST LOVELY disposition, and was so very kind.
What caught my eye the most as I was walking by, was this absolutely gorgeous painting she had done on a slab of planed wood. It was too giant for me to take home at about 25+lbs, but the most beautiful work of art. I was in love, and so sad, because I knew I couldn't have it. The artist approached me with two smaller circular slices off a small tree, and offered to paint the same picture for me, but the downsized version I could take home. I gasped a thankful "por favor" and I was almost in tears, as she smiled and agreed to do a matching one for my best friend I was with. She said she could have them done by the afternoon, but we agreed to come back the next day as we were adventuring around Tulum for my friend's last day there.
When my partner and I returned the next day, she had realized she was out of certain supplies and didn't ask for 1/2 up-front like she should have.... Now, generally, in Mexico this would set off major red flags. It's so easy to get ripped off, and it's so culturally normalized with tourists to certain degrees, I generally never give anything up front there. HOWEVER, in this case, I was not feeling ill or negatively about my gut feeling.... And holy crap was I ultimately NOT disappointed in any way. I gave her the 500pes, returned later that afternoon, and received a pair of wonderfully matching works of GORGEOUS art. My friend and I will cherish them forever, and we could not be more thrilled!!!!!
She wrapped them up so carefully so they wouldn't have the paint damaged on my trip home. Honestly they're so beautiful I could cry. The heart and soul that this lovely young woman puts into her work is just inspirational. She is an absolute MUST-SEE if you are visiting Tulum. She has many great works involving Freida Kahlo, and has a great femininity to her works. Cannot recommend Dani Tahis' work enough!!!!
Located on the main strip of the highway through town, but very small shop.... Go support this wonderful artist! She's so lovely and genuine, I'd be throwing so many pesos at her if I lived in Mexico, I would probably go broke, but I would have a house full of incredible art, so I'd still be winning! ;) DO NOT MISS.Written November 8, 2018
- I was shocked to have to pay for parking after spending a fair sum on groceries. This is something new this year. There was not a coloured pepper or tomato in sight! Thought I was in Mexico. On the plus side I was able to get on the wi fi!Written February 6, 2023
- This is the best overall shop in Tulum for souvenirs. The pottery: vases, serving bowls, etc. are beautiful, the best I’d seen on the trip, nothing like it in the airport. The Cancun airport is very good for general souvenirs also.Written November 6, 2021
