Overview

MexicArte offers a wide variety of truly Mexican souvenirs made by individual artisans from throughout Mexico. Items range from tiny, finely made model animals to large, unique original paintings. Everything is hand made and painted and can be chosen in-store and delivered by mail. There is a second MexicArte shop down the road in Akumal Bay and on Tulum Beach road too!

A lovely little shop selling various Mexican handicrafts. Plenty of Day of the Dead artifacts. I also bought a colourful pair of harem pants.

We visited the Akumal location of this shop. Great selection of different items and most are locally made, as opposed to the stuff in the airports that is made in China.

This store has some great items, and offers different choices than most of the "flea market" shops (which are not to be written-off at all; there are plenty of very cool handcrafts at these as well). I loved the handbags made from recycled bottle caps....but...More

The stuff here is unlike anything you will find at your typical souvenir shop. Prices are reasonable as these are not your run of the mill items. Service was friendly, they take credit cards if you wish to use them.

Mexican craft shops seem to be divided into two types. The most common sells mass produced tourist trinkets and the shops that are numerous - are almost interchangeable. The second type (this shop is a great example) has more interesting and one-of-a-kind items and the...More
