Art with Gaston
Visit Gastón Charó Gallery if you’re in the market for some paintings—or you just want to take a look. Charó started the gallery six years ago as his own studio. Now, the artist exhibits his own work, a combination of cubist, surrealist, and expressionist styles, as well as other national and international artists’ jewelry, paintings, photographs, and sculptures. Charó is deeply involved in the Playa del Carmen community and supports over 30 local artists. Let the artist/owner give you a tour and find colorful, wild, wacky, and authentic souvenirs. Open late and located on Fifth Avenue near Casa Mediterranea, one of Playa del Carmen’s best eateries, you’re in the middle of the area’s best shopping and activities. Grab a bite or a drink after you check out the art—always a good way to analyze what you’ve seen and discuss a potential purchase.
