If you're interested in bright, colorful handwoven Oaxacan textiles (rugs, etc.) have a look at La Zapoteca. The weaver is a friendly chap named Ino; you'll find him at Paseo del Pescador #9 in Zihua.

Quality shopping!! Local original art and from all over Mexico. Really nice store. Taxi drivers won't tell you because the store doesn't pay them to do so. But believe me it took 10 days and found it accidentally. A must!!!!
