Our gift shop features local crafts produced by the Kek'chi and Mopan Maya of southern Belize. These crafts include baskets woven from jippi jappa palm as well as hand made carved rosewood bowls and salad sets. Some craftsmen carve from slate while others use the gourds of the calabash depicting Mayan gods and deities.
