When owner Isabel Goldsmith-Patiño conceived of Las Alamandas, she wanted Mexico to permeate every corner of her exclusive retreat—its aromas, its colors, its ancestral and organic foods, its architecture and, of course, its magnificent landscapes. Visitors to this upscale Costalegre hotel will confirm that got her desire, even down to the objects in the hotel boutique.

Here, guests looking to shop the best of Mexico will find on exhibit a selection of handicrafts, paper products, artwork and jewelry culled from states such as Michoacán, Jalisco, Yucatán and Oaxaca. Think hand-carved wooden figures, exquisitely beaded in the Huichol tradition; papier maché creatures; and colorful embroidered pictures, hand sewn with over a million stitches…

This is Mexico shopping at its best—seasoned with a healthy dash of international souvenirs. Mixed in amongst the Mexican treasures, browsers will also find a variety of articles from such far flung places as Morocco, Brazil, France, India and more.
