If You Just Need To Touch Something
La Boutique is a high end store complete with personal shoppers, so if you let your fingers caress a ruby red glass vase or an obsidian egg, you will find a soft spoken Spanish girl appearing almost magically at your side to assist you. She can show you linen pillows wearing colorful stitched flowers, smooth ceramic kissy fish lamps in soft Caribbean blues, enormous wall clocks rusted and peeling like they’ve hung on the wall of a sea side cottage for decades, silvery chandeliers made from a thousand shimmering beads, or patterned throws made from the softest silks. Prices are not cheap. This is one of Cancun’s exclusive shopping adventures. But if you have a few extra pesos in your pocket and you want to pack something exotic in your suitcase, stop in at La Boutique and allow yourself to be wooed into touching something.
