Fall in love with the unusual art of painting on bird feathers at this gallery. Visitors will be able to take home beautiful and colorful pieces of art made on real feathers. The unusual art form comes from prehispanic origins, with artisans from Yucatán making them to this day in a nearby town called Baca. Each piece is delicately hand-painted, making every product sold unique. Top-of-the-line oil paint is used on the feather, which is then framed and protected by a glass sheet. Feathers used in these art pieces are picked up from the jungle, so don’t worry; no birds are harmed to obtain them.

Where: Calle Yalku Manzana 10, lote 3, local 4,

Hours: 8:00am - 18:00pm

Holistika is one of Tulum’s most famous boutique hotels. However, many tourists don’t know that inside their premises, you can find an “art walk,” where they brought together artists from all over the world to create their masterpieces in the Quintana Roo jungle. Through art, they generate awareness of the importance of nature and the interconnectedness of everything. The best part is that you don’t need to be a guest at the hotel to do the art walk; just go and visit!

Where: Holistika Tulúm Av 10 Sur Lote 4, Zona 11, Manzana 902, Tulúm
