If you’ve been in Ajijic long, you would undoubtedly recognize Crescencio Morales by the dozens of baskets and bags strapped around his body as he sells his work while walking the town’s streets.
Only, he prefers not to have his picture taken, so hopefully, you’ll recognize his son, Andrés, pictured above.
Crescencio moved from Guerrero to Guadalajara almost 50 years ago. For close to two decades he’s taken the bus to Ajijic every day to sell these palm creations, which are made by family members and friends.
If you’re interested in these colorful baskets and purses, there’s a good chance you’ll run into either Crescencio or Andrés at the intersection of Morelos and 16 de Septiembre, one block north of the malecón.Last updated November 23, 2018
