All of these items are all over both Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo. Check out the artisian's market and then enjoy a Sunday nite at the basketball court for great people watching. And there are all kinds of booths set up there so you can chose nice gifts. Come on down and shop. Keep in mind lots of the little places do not take credit cards. Abel and Julie and Albertos do...Come and enjoy! It is the greatest place in Mexico...that's why I live there!

The Ixapa crafts market also has a good selection of souveniers as well as the boutiques and stores in the commercial area. I like to get goodies from a store close to the catholic church in Zihuatanejo where you get the Olinalá ceramics. They sell beautiful art in that store. Jorge Perez is a local painter that makes amazing paintings using his fingers. He usually paints in the El Palmar beach in front of the Barceló hotel.
