“Great little store, reasonable prices”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

Lucy's has a fun and unique collection of colorful Mexican folk art brought in from all parts of the country. Having traveled through many of the source regions before, I can say that their prices are extremely reasonable. The store clerk was very friendly and chatty. We'll be back to shop again next trip!

“Lucy's CuCu exceptional value great stuff”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

We travel to Puerto Vallarta twice a year and never miss going to Lucy's CuCu Cabana. They have the best funny eclectic folk crafts as well as exceptional tapestries, carved alibrijes, and jewelry. Don't miss it! We pack extra suitcases in our luggage for the return trip and have never failed to fill them. It's a great way to bring a bit of Mexico home.

“A "Must Stop In" shop in PV”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

I have traveled all through Mexico and Lucy's Coo Coo (There is a reason for that name :-) Cabana has pieces from every corner of the country. There are Alebrijes (carved animal folk art) from Oaxaca, named dolls from Guanajuato, skeletal dolls (Dia De Los Muertos dolls) as well as Oaxacan weaved items, Taxco silver goodies and the list goes on and on and is constantly changing. If you don't find something you can't just live without you can pick up one Gil's books. He is the husband of Coo Coo Lucy. Many of the stories in his books are accounts of their travels around Mexico that will leave you ROLYAO !!!

“Most unique shopping in Mexico”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

You won't find a shop in Mexico with the type of items like you will find here. The owners have years of experience with hard-to-find craftsmen and women in Mexico. They spend four months traveling around to these out-of-the-way places to gather the most unique and original Mexican crafts. If you are going to P.V. you better do yourself a favor and find this shop. There simply isn't any better quality and original crafts anywhere that I've found and I've been going to Mexico for the last 50 years.
