Guadalupe “Lupita” Santos


Lupita lives with her large family in a colorful Bucerias home. While she works in hotels during the tourism season, she is famous in Bucerias for her beautiful handmade piñatas and Day of the Dead decorations, which she sells from her small paper goods store


Piñatas, colorful handmade paper flowers, Day of the Dead “coronas” (no, this doesn’t just refer to beer, it also means ‘crown’ or ‘wreath’ in Spanish!)


All of her products are customizable. Want a lookalike of your enemy made into a piñata? Lupita can make it for you.
