Overview
More
Lamanai was created at the beginning of the 90's as a promotional and sales project for Mexican Folk Art in the Caribbean, from Cancun to Belize. Pre Columbian Art was originally a popular creation that had a specific social function, which has perhaps disappeared through time, yet the desire of the artists that create it lingers on. Improvisation, personality, feeling, and incredible human ability are the qualities that characterize theseartists and artisans whose roots lay in Folk Art. Throughout the years, we have been able to assemble a good working team that has allowed us to expand the original concept, and seek new horizons. In 1999 a little gallery was opened on the Caribbean shoreline, in the beautiful bay of Akumal.

We recently spent a delightful week in Akumal, Mexico. One of the unexpected pleasures we experienced was an art gallery, Galeria Lamanai, located a little back from Akumal Bay. Galeria Lamanai is, unfortunately, still a hidden treasure. There is very little parking adjacent to the...More

At first thought it was a bit pricey but then read up about the artists and looked at the work going into each piece...not overpriced, it's a gallery not a gift shop. Although there are some good pieces that would make nice gifts. Worth a...More

Went to this gift shop while visiting Akumal beach for the day. It's quite small, but does offer a lot of choice inside, plus you get a 10% discount if you pay in cash. There are many things to choose from, such as wood carvings,...More
