Discover La Boquilla and support an amazing women’s artisan group. The project of Madres Cabeza de Familia y sus Cocos is an association of seven women who dedicate themselves to artisan work in the beautiful area of La Boquilla.
Come and discover La Boquilla and support an amazing project. The project Madres Cabeza de Familia y sus Cocos (Mothers Head of Family and Artistic Work with Coconuts) is an association of seven women. In 2008, they took part in a crafts-class sponsored by ProBoquilla and learned how to produce jewelry, silverware, containers, vases, belts and many other accessories out of coconuts and the best of it all is that they teach their skills to others!
The process of creating artisan work out of coconuts is not an easy process, the coconuts must be cleaned, soaked and cut as well as polished – it can be a very time demanding task. Join these women with their amazing skills and take a part in listening to their life stories.
First you will be taken to La Boquilla where you’ll be greeted by the women in charge of the coconut artisan work. Participants will get the opportunity to make their own souvenirs with prepared pieces of coconut. You’ll also be able to enjoy coconut beverages while working with the local women in a rustic restaurant on the beach of La Boquilla.
After finishing your handcraft souvenir you will get the change to go for a swim in the Caribbean Sea before heading back to your hotel.
