Owner description: Panama's ancient civilizations, cultural traditions, and natural treasures come to life in gold and silver. See how the preHispanic masterpieces are made by the same method as the ancient goldsmiths. Following a video presentation, walk a catwalk to a casting demonstration and try your hand at the sand blasting process. Showroom at factory prices also includes the finest collection of Panamanian handicrafts. Highly recommended by major travel guides. Two tours daily Mon-Fri 9:30am & 2:00pm.

I visited the store in Casco Viejo. It's one block off Avenida Central and about 3 blocks down from Plaza Herrera. The sales lady was extremely nice and helpful. I made some possible selections for my two granddaughters and said I wanted to think about it. When I came back later she had saved everything for me. The quality is excellent, and the store has a wide variety of things to choose from. I highly recommend it. And my granddaughters loved their gifts!

Thank you so much for your positive feedback. Our sales staff are very appreciative when someone takes the time to comment on their enjoyable experience shopping with us. And I am so glad your granddaughters liked their jewelry!

We so enjoyed our first tour at Reprosa in Costa del Este that we went back when friends came to visit Panama. It is well worth seeing more than once. We learned more the second time around, and our friends were amazed. The guide, Igua, is very well informed and has a great sense of humor. Do raise your hand to volunteer when invited as then you'll have a hands-on experience. The displays and demonstrations are educational yet entertaining. We just called the day before and reservations were readily available. Of course, we also enjoyed the shopping because the quality and variety of the jewelry, baskets, carvings, molas, hats and everything at Reprosa are top notch. You can buy with confidence that you're getting "the real thing". There is no pressure to buy. The temptation to do so is self imposed, especially after the tour because then you have a better appreciation for how the jewelry is made. The goodie bag given to each attendee as you leave contains local treats.

The actual store is not even worth the 3 minutes it would take to look over it. Perhaps, the tour is better? Unfortunately, it was only available on a limited basis and despite our 3 afternoons of availability, not do-able.

If you look at the top of our page you will see that the reviews are for our Factory Tour. Our tour is available from Monday to Friday at 9.30 am and at 2.00. It is unfortunate that you were not able to make it to the tour since as you can see we receive very good reviews. We are sorry you were only available to do the tour on a Saturday and Sunday. As yet, we have never turned away anyone who requested our tour during the week so I am not sure where you called to book a tour.
Customers reviews are very important to us since they have a direct bearing on the number of future guests taking our tour. At Reprosa we always strive to give our visitors a pleasant and unique experience, so it is sad that negative reviews by people who have never taken our tour are also allowed. If you have any other questions or suggestions, please feel free to e-mail me at ams@reprosa.com.

Interesting being shown all the stages in how they make the reproductions. I even got to try my hand at polishing. They show a short film first and give you a local drink. At the end everyone gets a goodie bag, including a bottle of the local booze, some hot sauce and some snacks.

Do visit the factory for a greater appreciation of this unique jewelry. We have been buying the jewelry for years as gifts and it is always a big hit. Reprossa is the only company with the right to produce gold and silver replicas of the original precolombian pieces. If you can't make it to the factory, there is a store in the banking district and a few pieces for sale in the duty free of the airport.
