THE HUICHOL ARTISANS

By

The Huichol indigenous people have been living in our region for hundreds of years and artisanal handicraft is deeply ingrained in their rich culture. Intricate yarn and bead techniques are centuries old and have been passed down as a way of sharing the legend and beliefs of the Huichol community.

Art is used as a means of prayer and to interact with the spirit world, creating symbolic representations of the figures that are central to their belief system. Some of the symbols you will frequently see in the art of the Huichol include trees, bears, armadillos, deer, coyote and peyote plants. Serpents are also often seen in Huichol art, but unlike in some other cultures, the serpent is revered by the Huichol as it protects the corn and peyote from pests.

There are numerous art galleries in Puerto Vallarta where you can explore Huichol Art. Pinnacle Resorts offers the only luxury accommodations in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone, only steps away from several galleries, as well as restaurants, beaches, nightlife and live entertainment, making it the perfect luxury vacation rental in Puerto Vallarta.

Ask our concierge for art gallery recommendations and on ways to support the Huichol people of Puerto Vallarta.
