We’ve purchased several items from Mundo de Cristal in the past and brought them directly with us back to the US. But this time we decided to purchase a full set of dishes on our last trip and reluctantly had them shipped (reluctant because we’ve been burned in the past). Not only did the dishes arrive within 2 weeks (directly... More

We made a special trip to this store to get a set of wine glasses for my sister. They have a huge selection of glass items here and will pack it so well for you you not have to think twice about getting them home. I love the unique pieces you can find here!!

Good spot to shop for and purchase Mexican blown-glass items: glassware, decorative items, etc. Connected to a sister shop, Mundo de Pewter.

This amazing store has just about everything you could want. They can even ship it home if needed. If you choose not to ship it, they will package it so well that even airport security wont bother you! You have to ask for Rosario when you go - she is Carlos' wife and just the sweetest person! Very safe area... More

There was some confusion on the pricing,but was told the person I communicated with was new. I understand. I did not want to carry it back to... More

This place was super busy when I went in this time. There was a tour inside the shop. The employees were organized and I got what I came for. The people who wrap the purchases deserve a tip, they did a great job and I got my purchases home safely.

We visited the store last week and bought a chandelier and confetti glassware. All were packed so well. We checked the chandelier as luggage and not one piece was broken. We couldn't be happier.
