The shopkeeper narrated the glass blowing process for us as we watched the artisans work. We watched as they completed a plate, which was amazing, then we shopped for a bit in the store. The people were very nice, and they carefully wrapped our purchases so we could carry them home safely in our luggage.

Large glass factory using recycled glass. There is an area that you can sit and watch the glass blowing being done. It is such an art. In minutes beautiful pieces are made from a ball of hot glass. Very impressive and many things to purchase.

This was a little hard to find. However it was an amazing experience. Make sure you go and spend some time watching the men make some amazing pieces.

Many, many people have erroneously reviewed this as a glass factory they visited on a tour. The address on this is review is correct and is a block or two off the marina. This store of the same name sells vast amounts of colourful, quality glassware (and much, much more) which is superior to the glass I have seen made... More

This place is in the industrial part of Cabo San Lucas so you probably want to see if your taxi driver can wait for you because it's pretty isolated around. We missed the glass blowing demonstrations because they end at 3:30 p.m. but the store is beautiful with lots of things to buy. They wrapped everything with enough padding that... More

The glass is nice I came home with a whole new set of drinking glasses. We walked from downtown out to the glass shop.

Neat place when we finally found it. Caution: don't use the map feature in Trip Advisor. It takes you to a vacant lot on wrong side of Cabo.

We took a local cab from out hotel and walked in during a tour group presentation. These guys are amazing. Creating beautiful artwork from hot glass. A must see either on tour or self guided. No sales pitch, no pressure, just beautiful art.

So cool! I read to avoid going when the cruise ships are in town and to just take a taxi, not a tour. So we did that, which was nice because there were no other people there (none!), but they didn't do any glass blowing demonstrations for just 2 people! Might not be a bad idea to go when it... More
