Deja Blue Cozumel is an ideal destination for finding high-quality locally made leather goods such as handbags, wallets and change purses made by skilled local craftspeople. Furthermore, shops at the Mercado Municipal offer handmade textiles and macrame accessories to add color and flair to your beachwear or wardrobe.
Jewelry is another top souvenir choice on Cozumel for visitors to purchase, especially sterling silver pieces adorned with rubies and sapphires. Artisan jewelry in Cozumel tends to be more cost-effective than its American counterparts and many local artisans even maintain workshops right in San Miguel to demonstrate the care put into each product made there.
Coral is another highly prized item available on Cozumel for purchase, and it’s important to make sustainable purchasing choices when selecting coral jewelry made by local artisans and other beautiful handicrafts from Mexico – from world-famous Guayabera shirts and chales made of nylon to Huichol art pieces and Alebrije sculptures that resemble insects – you won’t run out of options!
Mexico may be a religious country, but that doesn’t preclude shopping opportunities for authentic Mexican souvenirs and gifts. Artist Greg Dietrich sells his glass blown creations at his store on Main Street while other shops feature handmade jewelry, traditional toys, clothing and apparel from Mexico.
Punta Langosta Pier and Royal Village offer some of the best shopping in Cozumel, located a short taxi ride from its piers. Additionally, explore the downtown zocalo (town square) for even more options for jewelry, leather goods and souvenirs. Be wary of shop owners trying to overcharge tourists; being polite while insisting on fair pricing will yield fantastic bargains – you might even get lucky enough to score some free items just by browsing around!
