Located one hour from The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort, this traditional Mexican City offers the best in artisan shopping in all Bahia of Banderas. Famous art galleries, handicraft boutiques and jewelry shops can be located in “Old Vallarta” and the Romantic zone. On Calles Libertad, Juarez and Morelos, small shops selling traditional Mexican apparel, folk art, and beachwear juxtapose with art galleries and boutiques offering original art, pottery and designer clothing at prices that are sure to make you “shop ‘til you drop”.But for many savvy shoppers the real fun begins when haggling with beach vendors, at street-side stands and in flea markets. Haggling is a common practice in Mexico, and in most cases, if you offer to pay about 40% less than the asking price, you’ll end up paying somewhere between the initial amount and your counter offer. The only rule of the game is to maintain mutual respect while wavering between impulse and indifference. A must see is the gallery by internationally known Sergio Bustamante—the creator of life-size brass, copper, and ceramic animals, mermaids, suns, and moons—he also has a team of artisans to execute his never-ending pantheon of creative and quirky objets d’art. Paintings, purses, shoes, and jewelry are sold here as well. It’s across the street from the statue by the same artist, on the Malecón. Located on the same street is the Arte Huichol Gallery and Museum, which hosts a beautiful collection of masks, clothes, stunning beadwork, and woven paintings created by the native indigenous population. This gallery supports the local Huichol community. Another must see is Cassandra Shaw Jewelry and art gallery shop located in Basilio Badillo 276, a dream of personally designed silver jewelry. The elaborate, bold jewelry designs, the brightly colored silks from Mexico City, and Cassandra’s unique and contemporary paintings all draw you in and challenge your mind to focus on one thing at a time. By visiting the store you also get to meet her famous Chihuahua models, Leo and Bean!
