Cancun: Avoid tortoiseshell

Posted by Fodor's Editors on April 2, 2010 at 2:00:00 AM EDT | Post a Comment

Refrain from buying anything made from tortoiseshell. The carey, or hawksbill turtles, from which most of it comes, are an endangered species, and it's illegal to bring tortoiseshell products into the United States and several other countries.
