We had previously purchased a similar picture on a trip to Merida, MX and we were thrilled when we discovered this gallery on Cozumel! They also had a small kiosk in the square. The lady who owns the shop was very friendly and helpful as we spent a considerable amount of time looking at all of the amazing works of art and deciding which ones to purchase to add to our collection. ( we settled on two, which was difficult to do with the vast selection! ) If you have never seen art such as this, be sure and stop by. Such an incredibly unique talent that amazes us !

Have come here all 5 times I've visited Cozumel. They started with a cart on the main square but now have a full sized store!

They have a painted feather(s) for anyone! We have bought around 20 of them and love giving them as gifts. Our 4 year old even picked one out for her room.

It's a small shop, just 5 minutes from the ferry port. It is interesting to see, but don't plan to spend more than 20 minutes there (if you are really browsing). Doesn't really worth getting to the island for, but if you are around, worth a visit.

Unique art feather paintings, not inexpensive but worth buying. There is a gentleman who also sells at a cart by the clock tower in the town square who will negotiate good prices

After seeing reviews for this place on TA, my husband and I visited Balam on our last cruise. The shop was easy to find from the central plaza. They have beautiful painted feathers from very small to peacock feathers with prices for framed feathers starting around $25 US. We always look for unique handmade items from our travels and this artwork really fit the bill!

We have purchased several pieces from this shop in downtown Cozumel not far from the Forum shops. They are beautifully done, framed with glass to protect them. Definitely check them out if you want a one of a kind souvenir from Cozumel.

I love my pictures. The lady who sold them was so proud of her family and their talent. They put Romans 10:13 on the shopping bags. Very beautiful shop and art.

These painted feathers are really unique. If you want to take something home to remember your trip - perfect! They have all sizes so it's not difficult to carry or pack. Worth taking a look. Located right off the square about 2 or so blocks from the clock tower.

Not fine art, but great, unique, craft art. I think it is probably one of the more unique crafts that one may find in Cozumel from a Yucatecan family. A good variety and decent prices.

This shop was a rare and unique treasure within the central shopping district. Even if you do not make a purchase, you should stop by and look over the unique art that is painted on feathers.
