I was looking for something unique to bring home from my trip to Puerto Rico. I found a number of "authentic" gifts at several shops but the masks and art at Arte & Mascaras seemed especially authentic. Ms. Mestey (the shop proprietor) took a great deal of time explaining the history and symbolism of the masks we were interested in buying and was very enthusiastic about them. She was extremely warm and knowledgeable and the time we spent in the shop with her was well spent. I will encourage any friends or family traveling to PR to stop into her shop and will do the same should I return to Old San Juan. If you are looking for more than a tangible souvenir and to learn about what you are buying, look no further than Arte & Mascaras and Ms. Mestey.
