Gaga Over Guelaguetza Gallery

April 28, 2015

If you're got your heart set on bringing home some colorful, authentic Mexican artwork, look no further than Guelaguetza Gallery, just a short hop from your Playa del Carmen hotel. Some consider it the best shop and gallery in town. Hand-blown glassware, intricate pottery, Día de los Muertos-themed sculpture and figurines, silver and woodwork. The pieces here are not mass-produced, so you can be sure to find something unique and hand-crafted by a local artisan. This family-owned gallery has helpful, English-speaking staff who will package your purchases carefully for the journey home. Guelaguetza is located on bustling 5th Avenue, Playa del Carmen's shopping mecca.
