Lucy's is along the main road of Basilio Badillo. She is a wonderful character with generous knowledge of the nearby sites and restaurants. AND the shop has unique, high quality Mexican artifacts. Prices seem reasonable too.

Tiny shop with very carefully selected Mexican craft pieces. Lucy & Gil & their staff are terrific at helping pack & ship wonderful art pieces. Save yourself long hunts for take-home pieces.

We tried to find this shop but it seems to have closed. Has it reopened elsewhere?

Lucy's Cucu Cabaña just reopened in the same location it's been in for twenty-two years after extensive remodeling. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused anyone, but we are always trying to make it better.
Does this shop have a web site? We just visited Puerta Vallerta last week and missed this one!
