Los Cabos is a shopping paradise and suffers no shortage of incredible and unique finds. Whether you are on the hunt for Mexican-made trinkets, local jewelers, embroidered clothing made by the indigenous, or exceptional works of Baja art, you are sure to find great shopping in Los Cabos.

Eclectic Array Boutiques
With six boutiques in Los Cabos, owner Faryn Clark of Eclectic Array works with artisan communities all over Mexico to give fair trade and sustainable opportunities. With a wide range of products – from clothing, swimwear, bags, jewelry, and accessories – the stores’ mission is to operate with positive social impact and empower artisans who create beautiful handmade products. Each of their locations is uniquely curated, with Montage hotel having the largest collection to shop from. Eclectic Array also has stores in downtown Cabo San Lucas, downtown San Jose del Cabo, and Flora Farms. Some of their most popular items sold include embroidered Converse shoes, indigenous hand-woven dog collars, and Mexican-made Oro leggings

Most Mexican-made jewelry found in Los Cabos is made of 0.925 silver that comes from the mining town of Taxco, Guerrero. The Ballesteros Family Workshop (Talleres de Los Ballesteros) is a stand-out store to browse and buy quality pieces. Originating in Taxco in 1937, they have always used traditional techniques in their craftsmanship and have more than 80 years of perfecting their art. Each piece is carefully crafted with tradition, vanguard, and exclusivity to cater to an array of tastes and preferences.

Hand-Blown Glass Factory
A locally made and sourced craft of Los Cabos, Vitrofusion y Arte Glass Factory (Fabrica de Vidrio) is a place to find unique blown glass pieces of all sizes, shapes, and colors. The kaleidoscopic shop is certain to leave a memorable impression, and be sure not to miss out on one of the factory tours. Fun Fact: Much of the glass used for their creations come from recycled glass bottles of the local community – pretty and eco-friendly!
