Puras Cosas Buenas A Holistic Treasure In The Heart Of Merida
A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a small treasure right in the heart of Merida. I was called to come check out some of the specialty made products at Puras Cosas Buenas and what I found left me walking around with my mouth open...literally. Tucked into the Colonia Mexico is a holistic center where you can find a plethora of top quality natural products all made by hand by the same people that will be greeting you at the door. Puras Cosas Buenas is just that--Purely Good Things. This store and holistic center complex came about as a product of a community of Italians and Mexicans who live on a ranch outside of Oxkutzcab,Yucatan where they also have and eco spa and lodge called Las Aguilas Eco Spa. They started out with the idea to live a natural, healthy, and self-sustainable life. They believe in living a life where they know where the products they consume are coming from. Originally they were making all their products for themselves only, but because there were so many friends and acquaintances interested in buying their products they decided to open up to the public. This collective is a group of extremely talented artisans and knowledgeable healers. At their ranch, they have organic gardens, they raise cows and goats for dairy products, they make natural remedies and cosmetic products as well as handmade shoes, crafts, jewerly, art and leather products. The complex is truly a gem and is right in Colonia Mexico, if you live here I am sure you have passed it a hundred times.
