Acatras Del Mercado has some very interesting items done by local artists. They shipped a vase that I purchased in a sturdy box that was constructed by hand in the store. The vase came in perfect condition. I was very pleased.

This is a delightful and interest small shop very near the cruise ship terminal. Most of the items are locally made with an excellent selection of art and jewelry. Do not miss this shop.

Located right at the port in a very trendy, tourist area. They have some great art that is made locally. Also very reasonable priced.
