Cozumel shopping has surpassed the simple beach stores. There are many wonderful shops and prestigious boutiques on Cozumel selling a variety of handicrafts, jewelry, perfumes and much more. On this provincial island, you can also find interesting articles unique to Cozumel that you won't be able to get on the mainland. There are also many items made of black coral, but it needs to be mentioned that this species is in danger of extinction.
Cozumel has three main shopping areas: along the waterfront downtown, the crafts market behind the main Plaza, and the cruise ship passenger terminal, just south of town where you will find an infectious party atmosphere, conducive to colorful stalls and serious bargaining. If a cruise ship stays late (most leave early evening), then these shops stay open until the boat departs.
Another aspect that makes this destination unique and interesting is the duty free shops, where you can find prestigious brands and products all at incredible prices.
Los Cinco Soles
If you visit Cozumel, don't miss out on the opportunity to visit Los Cinco Soles, a quaint handicraft store where you can buy delicate pieces produced by artisans from all over the country. It is located four blocks north of the pier, offering a gorgeous Caribbean Sea view. The array of wonderful handicrafts are exhibited in a restored mansion that gives a unique feel to this store.
Jewelry and Perfume Shops
When you visit Cozumel you will have the opportunity to admire and buy fine jewels, silver, gold, exotic gems, diamonds and the most exquisite fragrances from the perfumeries. Duty Free prices make the jewelry and perfume stores the best places to find the perfect gift for your loved ones or just to get a luxurious souvenir of the Mexican Caribbean.
Punta Langosta Mall
The Punta Langosta Mall is the most prominent, modern shopping mall on Cozumel, different from the others because it is open-air. It has many stores where you can find pretty much anything you are looking for, from brand name clothes, to silver and even delicious cuisine. This is the perfect place for an American-style shopping day with family or friends.
Handicrafts in the Main Plaza
If you are looking for somewhere to purchase handicrafts and clothing made and embroidered by Mexican artisans then stop by the Main Plaza. There are lots of lovely stands surrounding the plaza. You can be sure that while walking through this Plaza, you'll find the souvenir or special one-off gift that you've been looking for.
