The Garcia Sisters Museum and shop is perfectly located, and is a great stop for gifts, if you're going to MPR. They have tons of hand made art. They are pretty famous in Cayo for their art. From slate carvings, which they do very well, to jewelry, thay have it. You'll surely find something for everyone.

The Garcia sisters welcome you to their village to experience the gifts of their homeland and ancient traditions. It is a place where planting and harvesting are sacred. When Maria Garcia greeted me she was proud to show off the family's rediscovery of slate carvings. The sisters are all accomplished Yucatan Mayan artists and this ancient art form rediscovery has...
