Artemania, run by a French ex-pat, always offers an interesting range of local and Central American crafts. Colorful hammocks, jewelry, bags, t-shirts, scarves, blouses... Artemania has it. Located in an old-style Panamian house, on the southeast corner of the main plaza, the little shop is a must visit if you are looking for souvenirs of Pedasi. I have acquired a... More

We enjoyed shopping in this small shop. As others have stated, the prices are fair and the owner is very helpful. My wife purchased some inexpensive but fun pieces of jewelry and I found a woven Panama hat that I liked.

Returned to Artemania when back in Pedasi - the coffee that they have here is amazing,! Both times I've been its from different regional areas and both have been the best coffee I've picked up on my travels in Panama. It has a number of cool jewelry items, oils and all natural soaps etc - all not really my thing,... More

If there is an item of Artesania or jewelry made anywhere in Panama, you can buy it here at very fair prices. The owner is very sweet and helpful to ensure you will make the selection you will treasure.

Perhaps it's because Panama's tourism is still developing, or perhaps its because our tastes are different, but we had a hard time finding decent arts, crafts and souvenirs in Panama. Our last stop of our 4 town tour in Panama was Pedasi, and we were delighted by Artemania. We bought far more here than anywhere else in Panama. They had... More

From clothing to accessories, coffee and fresh coconut oil from a local source, there were plenty of options for unique pieces to bring back home. Carolina the shop keeper is also very helpful and kind... More

I always stop in Artemania on the central square in Pedasi, to check out the ceramics , jewelry, bags, clothing, hats --a carefully curated selection of Panamá-crafted traditional and modern styles. I never leave empty-handed, and I've been vacationing in Pedasi for 8 years! Prices are reasonable , the owner is friendly, helpful and multilingual and there is always something... More
