Shopping on Ambergris Caye

Whether grocery or souvenir shopping, San Pedro Town is where you'll find shopping to be at its finest on Ambergris Caye.  You can walk from one end of town to the other, picking up local goods along the way.  Top wares include porcelain collectibles, items made from sea glass, island apparel, black coral and pearl jewelry, and locally produced fine arts.  

If you're looking for something a little different, hit up the street vendors who set up booth all over town, constantly moving to where they expect to find the most tourist activity each day, and if you're staying long enough that a grocery store is necessary, you'll have access to that as well.  Outside of San Pedro Town, things are much more limited.
