No trip is complete without gifts and souvenirs; the Mexican Caribbean offers a world of shops for you to choose from in its various destinations. The diversity in the stores is truly wide, from colorful and folkloric markets to elegant and fine boutiques.

Cancun: There is no better option for shopping than where you find everything for everyone. Cancun is the western capital of perfumes; the best fragrances at the best prices. The best known international brands are available in its ultramodern malls.

La Isla Shopping Village is on the Nichupte Lagoon under a giant canopy. It boasts more than 150 national and international stores, making it the most important commercial center in Cancun's Hotel Zone. This amazing shopping andentertainment center marks the transition from one millennium to another due primarily to its nontraditional structure that preserves the natural beauty and attractions that Mexico's main tourist center has to offer.

Kukulcan Plaza is the most exclusive and luxurious shopping center in all of Cancunand the Riviera Maya. It is located in the Hotel zone, where the main Five Star and Grand Tourism hotels are situated. Kukulcan Plaza's offerings range from boutiques of worldwide renown, jewelry shops with fine gems of prestigious designers, elegant perfumeries, and fine restaurants, to shops that offer handicrafts and even bowling!Shopping in Cancun is an excellent option.

Playa del Carmen: Playa is the Caribbean coast's retail heart, and meandering Quinta Avenida and its side streets to ferret out the latest boutiques and shops makes a fine late-afternoon diversion. Once you get past the ferry terminal area, low-key, locally owned shops vie for your vacation dollar with high-end clothing, Cuban cigars, specialty tequila, handicrafts, jewelry, and beach wear. Credit cards are widely accepted. Abundant folk art and boutiques are concentrated between calles 4 and 10; Calle Corazón, a leafy pedestrian area between calles 12 and 14, has art galleries, restaurants, and still more boutiques.

North of Constituyentes, artists display their works along Quinta Avenida, wine bars abound, and shops offer high-quality clothing, folk art, and shoes. This section is often used for art shows and festivals. La Sirena, at Calle 26 (tel. 984/803-3422), offers trendy folk art with calaca (skull), lucha libre, and Frida Kahlo themes.

Paseo del Carmen, at the south end of Quinta Avenida, has acquired a collection of interesting shops, galleries, and restaurants. InArt (tel. 984/803-3968;, a jewelry gallery that also sells gorgeous, unique silver pieces embedded with Mexican semiprecious gems and stones, is worth the trip in itself.
