Casa de las Artesanías Yucatán

La Casa de las Artesanías del Estado de Yucatán translates as "The House of Crafts of the State of Yucatán" so it's about crafts from Yucatán. It is located next to the Church of the Nuns, one block west of Plaza Grande.

It is a government-operated store selling a wide-range of Yucatecan handicrafts. For more than 30 years, La Casa de las Artesanías del Estado de Yucatán has been involved in promoting traditional crafts.

The work of the artisans is promoted through support programs and some of the products are sold in the government-owned in stores. All prices are fixed, so no negotiation is possible (which can be pleasant).

Other locations

There are currently another four stores:

The store "Artesanaria" diagonally opposite the Parque de Santa Lucia is not one of them, but it is also a recommendable store, where you can buy similar handicrafts.
