Mexicarte, the pink shop by the entrance arch, in
Akumal, presents a selected collection of art, jewelry
and handcraft.

The artisans whose work we choose to display, were
chosen because their recognition in their trade. You
can find some of their works documented in
maestros del arte popular mexicano”

These are people that are true to their roots, and don’
t have access to mass marketing.
We visited remote villages, and learned about them
as we documented their work.

Mexicarte is currently working in a close relationship
with the cultural branches of the Mexican government,
whose sole purpose is, to preserve the tradition and
cultural heritage of the vast array of ethnic and
indigenous communities that exist in Mexico.

So by acquiring these pieces you are contributing to
the welfare of our Mexican artisans, strengthening
their roots to their places, and helping us to preserve
our cultural heritage.
