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, or take advantage of one of the companies that offers shipping.)
