Mexico's beautiful handicrafts and folk art are the result of skill and knowledge that have been passed down through generations. Many visitors to Mexico end up with bags twice as heavy on their return trip because they just couldn't resist the temptation to purchase lots of handicrafts! (Bring an extra bag, just in case!)

Some things you may want to buy: silver jewelry, hand-blown glass, Talavera pottery and other ceramics, woodcarvings, baskets and hats, clothing and a rebozo.
