Pedro's Gourd Art - Muna, Yucatan



In the tiny town of Muna, on the hilltop you must cross over to get to Uxmal, there sits a tiny artisans shop run by Pedro, who makes the most spectacular little gourds, perfect for decorating your home or for gifts to bring home.


The gourds are hollowed out, dried and then carved, polished and waxed to become beautiful objets d'art you will be proud to own. Please note that I receive no commissions from any shop or restaurant recommended on this site; any mention is made only in the interest of promoting the shop, restaurant or artist and only those deemed worthy of any attention receive write-ups.
