Shopping in Riviera Maya

Throughout the Riviera Maya, you'll find that shopping opportunities vary but there are a few constants.  For example, nearly every town has a weekly craft market or at the very least a souvenir shop or two.  Some places like Playa del Carmen are especially known for their shopping prowess.

The best souvenirs to bring home will be those that you are made locally.  These might include jewelry made from the area's precious stones (onyx, opal, turquoise, amethyst, and lapis lazuli), batik clothing, hand woven blankets, products woven of straw, and chocolates.  If it is duty-free goods you're after you'll find them mostly in Cancun and on Fifth Avenue in Playa del Carmen.
