ARTex Store & Handicraft Market

ARTex specializes in all things music, offering a great selection of music and art paraphernalia from T-shirts to records to musical instruments. You'll find the market opposite Acuazul Hotel (Calle 12), while the store itself is just a stone's throw away from Iglesia Santa Elvira.


Cigars, rum, coffee and honey are some of the items most sought-after by travellers to Cuba, and rightfully so - these locally-produced products make for perfect gifts and souvenirs, and are often a great bargain to purchase in their land of origin. Products of the non-edible variety include wood handicrafts, Cuban art, music paraphernalia and records. For serious antiques and vintage shopping, it might be worth to plan a trip to Havana, where finds range from rare jewellery to books and magazines.
