A nice little art gallery close to the Darwin Centre. Worth a stop over on the way to or from the tortoise breeding centre. If you need something to remind you of your visit, this could be the place for you.

We thought this shop and Exotica had the best products to buy in town. Nice range of hand made goods. We especially liked the carvings made from the tagua nut.

I enjoyed just looking around in here at the gorgeous metal, textile, and painted art as well as the beautiful jewelry. Most everything was beyond my budget, but it was cool inside, and well worth spending time in this lovely gallery.

A wonderful gallery to look and appreciate. The artisans are at the top of their profession and the examples are awesome. I just wish I had the cash to afford the talent displayed.

We loved seeing items made by people from the area. Beautiful selection of crafts. I bought a gorgeous basket made by the Wounaan tribe.

The salespeople were informative and friendly. We focused on sculptures and textiles, ended up finding a sculpture we liked enough to buy. All the selections spoke of quality and of the Ecuadoran culture. We recommend stopping in.

This is the kind of store I'm always looking for when I travel. Aside from the typical souvenir t-shirts you bring home for family, this gallery offers original pieces that beautifully represent Ecuadorian and other area artists. Martin was very interesting to speak with and...More
