Shopping in Cozumel

With a wide variety of merchandise ranging from beautifully crafted textiles, Mexican handcrafts, fine diamonds and sterling silver jewelry to duty-free perfumes and watches you are sure to find the perfect gift at one of the many shops found in the Island.

W?hen you are ready for a break from the sun and surf, stroll through the shops in town. Walking the streets and shopping centers is a delightful experience. From an embroidered shirt to one-of-a-kind jewelry, Cozumelís shops and boutiques offer excellent selection and value downtown. You will see a wide array of imported items, including duty-free perfumes and cosmetics, china and crystal, fine watches and collectibles.

If you shop carefully, you will find that prices on jewelry fashioned with Mexican silver and turquoise are very reasonable. When buying sterling silver, always make sure you see .925 stamped on the item. Gold items should be stamped with a set of two numbers and two letters (in any combination). Textiles are another important product and show Mexicoís geographic and cultural diversity. Traditional Mayan dresses and shawls, as well as menís embroidered cotton shirts and tightly woven Panama hats, are representative of the states in the Yucatan Peninsula, including the State of Quintana Roo. Hammocks are also an essential part of life in the region and are available in a wide array of color combinations and fabrics. Leather goods reflect Mexicoís proud tradition of fine craftsmanship and its high quality.

Reproductions of ancient native handcrafts, including jewelry, stone carvings, wooden masks and semiprecious-stone sculptures make wonderful souvenirs. Youíll also find colonial-style items such as filigree jewelry, lacework and wood furniture. Interesting objects crafted from onyx, one of Mexicoís major exports, are widely available as well. Be sure to check out the vast selection of pottery in Cozumelís stores including everything from unglazed clay pieces to beautiful stoneware crockery.
