Is without a doubt a space of love and art.

  • This is the best store in Antigua when you are buying high quality handicrafts, jewellery, masks and textiles. Especially if you really want to be sure that you know the origin and history associated with the work. The owners are patient and helpful and not aggressive in any way. It is more like visiting a museum that allows you to buy art! Don't miss this shop. It is very close to the main square.

  • The quality of work showcased at La Casa del Algodon is unlike anything you'll see in the markets. If you're interested in purchasing high quality textiles as a souvenir (and from a socially responsible entity), then this is the best place to shop. It's a small, intimate shop on the east-side of Antigua, a block south from Casa Santo Domingo. All their products are 100% natural cotton woven by hand in various Mayan communities around Guatemala. Each pattern tells a story and the wonderful shop hosts are happy to tell it to you! ~Theresa Atkins, Central America Vacation
