Have you ever wondered how they do that? Well, enter Stone Castle Cameo Factory and be amazed and have those questions answered. Artisans sums it. I have always been fascinated with cameos. The skill required to make scene or face come to life as realistic...More

We specifically went out of our way to visit the artist. They are usually only open on cruise days, so make sure they're open. It wasn't but we managed to get the artist to open up shop. Took a very, very long time.... But, he...More

We went during a Carnival excursion called "Top 10 Best of Roatan." This was a neat place, and the carved, shell jewelry was beautiful. You can even watch an artist work. There's not an option below for family (all adults).

A must stop on way to the beach. If we hadn't had a great taxi driver who knew it was there, we would have never known it was there. The pieces are beautiful and a small piece about $20 but worth it for the work...More

Our experience with the Cameo Factory was incredible! We went via a shore excursions tour from our cruise on Dec. 16th, 2016. My wife and I appreciate FINE works of art, and the creations of 4th generation master carver Franco Tammaro are breathtaking. His skills...More

I remember steps going out of the retail shop side of the building. Not sure on the entrance/info hall side. If no steps there, you could easily reverse course and exit that way. At worst, it's 2 or 3 steps. If going with... More
