Touted as a great gallery with local crafts, this shop has interesting pieces but very little stock. There are better shops in Casco Viejo with more interesting items (eg-La Reprosa)

Some of the best original Kuna Yala embroidery and other handicrafts you can find in Panama City.They also have some African art and craftds with unique designs. We read about this place in several gjuide books before we left. The store did not disappoint.

Excellent selection of Panama's quintessential crafts. Good quality. While I was there, they were negotiating with two Indian women over their molas and the conversation seemed respectful and congenial. I always worry about exploitation of local craftspeople and Karavan has a good reputation.

Not your typical shop catered to tourists, but handmade, authentic, beautiful crafts. Be sure to have the address handy because taxi drivers have no idea what you are talking about if you just give the name of this shop
