We have just returned from a 3 week stay in Akumal. My only regret from the whole trip was not finding this shop sooner, and then not bringing home as many things as I would have liked. This is by far the most beautiful gallery with the highest quality work that we saw during our entire stay, including traveling to Holbox,, and day trips to Tulum, Puerta Aventuras, Playa and Cancun. This is not a "souvenir" shop, though they have many pieces that would make wonderful gifts or just reminders of a visit to Mexico. Do not expect to bargain with them regarding prices, you would not bargain in a gallery at home - these are lovely pieces of artwork, in a variety of mediums - Oaxacan carvings, paintings, mixed media pieces, textiles, jewelry, among others. I bought two small Oaxacan painted animals, a wooden Virgin, a beautifully crafted dream catcher, and some prints on cloth. As I said, I wish I would have brought more home with me. The staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the art and the artists. I can't wait to return to Akumal, and this will be a frequent stop.
