If you like to do all your souvenir shopping boom-boom in one hour flat, this is the place for you. Arranged around two courtyards, and on two levels, CEMUART is a co-op of craftspeople. You will find Tagua carvings, lots of textiles, leather, pottery...

Another good place for some last minute shopping (open late) is the Galeria El Tucán. It looks more upscale than the CEMUART co-op, but the prices are the same (see third photo). The Galeria is situated Antonio Borrero 7-35, near the corner of presidente Córdova.

Address: General Torres 7-33
Directions: Across the street from the Plaza San Francisco Market. The entrance is under an arcade, next door to the Casa de la Mujer.
Theme: Local Craft

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
