No trip to PDC is complete without a stop at the Candle Boutique. I am now 4 for 4 and each time I have introduced more people to their products. Great value for the money and you will always have something in your home to remember your trip by.

I now own 3 of their candle holders and recently purchased 1 more as a gift. The first two holders I bought 5 years ago when staying in Playa Del Carmen and I just love how the light filters through the wax holders. I put some sand in the holders and then place a tealight in them. I recently bought... More

My family and I stayed in Playa Del Carmen for a few weeks in February in the neighborhood of this lovely candle boutique. I fell in love with this shop the moment I spotted it! Such a gorgeous display of the most beautiful candle collection ever. I knew I had to have them for my home, but could not carry... More

Okay, so my husband and I have been to Playa Del Carmen for years and we have passed by this cute little candle shop for years....always thinking those candles are awesome but I bet they are so expensive. Much to our surprise (and disappointment that we never stepped in there before) we were so happy to see that the candles... More

I have both purchased candles and being in weddings and cocktails with Artevelas candles setting and I have nothing but clap clap clap clap :D . The packing of my candle was perfect and made it in great conditions all the way home. On top of all these, the service is warm and flawless!

These wax candle holders hold any regular candle, such as a tea light, votive, etc. (depending on size of the holder), and therefore they don’t burn down like an actual candle. I was told these are handmade locally. I love the beautiful glow that the coloured ones make, particularly the warm shades like reds and oranges. Prices are very reasonable.... More

Artevelas most definitely on my bucket list during my 2014 visit to Playa. I was introduced last year by friends and fell in LOVE! In fact, made sure to pack light and leave room in my suitcase in anticipation of bringing some pieces home with me to Canada. Guarantee you will not find these beauties anywhere else.

My friends and I stumbled upon Artevelas on accident but quickly fell in love with the unique and BEAUTIFUL handcrafted candles. We came back 3 different times during our week's stay in Playa del Carmen. I will definitely consider purchasing more online as I could only fit 1 medium-large one with me on the plane home! Don't miss out!

What a quaint little shop in PDC. It was SO hard to limit myself to just a few candles...I will definitely be back for more. We ordered 3 larger round candles and they were made for us before we headed home...all ready and packaged for us to transport. They arrived safe and sound. A real unique candle store.....worth the visit.
