“Great service and beautiful art pieces”
Review of Sun Jaguar

Sun Jaguar
Reviewed 17 March 2014

We were in Playa del Carmen and was recommended by a relative to visit this shop, and were not disappointed. We received great service and the beautiful Mexican art pieces had the most competitive prices, which we purchased a few items. There were similar items in a shop further down 5th avenue about 5 blocks away and the prices were outrageous priced (almost double), as well as in Akumal. If one purchase several items and make payment in cash, one would receive a discount.

Would highly recommend visiting this shop for authentic Mexican art pieces one would keep.

Excellent store. Beautiful pottery. Worth a visit if only just to look. Smaller pieces were reasonably priced. As for the jewelry, the silver was beautiful.

I loved this shop. We bought an amazing paper bark art piece but we accidently left it in the taxi when we arrived home in the US. I would love to replace it. Please let me know if anyone has contact information for the owners. Thank you.

Found this little store by accident - what a gem. These are the keepsakes you want to take home and display forever. Truly unique, though you will recognize some of the themes (lucha libre, day of the dead) they are all done in a new and beautiful way. Only problem was not buying more - wish I could shop here on line for the things I foolishly didnt buy the first time around. Extremely friendly shop keeper. If I understood correctly, designers create the items, but then they are made by local women's cooperatives - very smart and you can feel good about buying it.

Lovely items with everything from handmade textiles, unique jewelry,pottery, & bark paper artwork. Owner is knowledgable about the art forms, their meaning & the artists. Bought a few items one day and then went back for more a few days latter. Good value for the pieces purchased.This is like a "gallery" shop. Don't expect to barter. If in Playa again, we will go back!
