While on my vacation in Mexico last week, I was trying to find real authentic little shops with hand made items. While driving from our resort to Playa del Carmen, we passed this small little shop. It was just beside the road and if you have you eyes on the other side you’ll just drive by this little gem of a shop. So when we passed back again to go back to the resort, I told my husband to turn around and go back. I’m so glad I did. This little gem is called “La Casa Azul” which means The Blue House. I had the pleasure to meet the lovely owner of the shop, Ximena.
You will find amazing handmade pieces from artists from Mexico City and from India. A diversity of items, like blown glasses, tableware, table linen, pottery, furniture, copper, nickel or blown glass lamps, scarves, earrings, bags and so much more. You’ll be amazed how much pretty there is.
I had to buy those green earrings. They also have two shops located at San Miguel de Allende in Guanajauto. So if you are going to travel to Cancun, drop by here. Ximena will be waiting for you with a big smile. La Casa Azul is located at the federal highway Cancun, just before you enter Playa del Carmen. What kind of shops have you seen on your trips?
