Marsol Friday Market by the Pier: Hope by Design

Beautiful handbags are created by underprivileged women in some of the most impoverished colonias in Vallarta and proudly offered for sale at Marsol Market. We encourage you to take home one or more of these lovely, handmade creations. You will not only be buying a useable piece of art but will be giving hope, money and a massive boost of confidence for the underprivileged woman who made your new purse.

Buying original artwork can be expensive and sometimes intimidating. Talk to our resident painter Mateos Diaz and look at his renditions of Mexican cityscapes and rural pueblos. Those of you who are new to Vallarta and want to embrace some Mexican culture, take one of Mateos’s creations home to decorate your walls and warm your heart.
