Shopping in Cozumel

Cozumel Shopping

Cozumel's main souvenir-shopping area is downtown along Avenida Rafael E. Melgar and on side streets around the plaza. You’ll also find clusters of shops at Plaza del Sol (East side of main plaza) and Vista del Mar (Av. Rafael E. Melgar 45, between Calles 5 and 7). Tourist-trap malls at the cruise-ship piers sell jewelry, perfume, sportswear, and low-end souvenirs at high-end prices.


downtown shops accept U.S. greenbacks, and many goods are priced in dollars. To get better prices, pay with cash or traveler’s checks—some shops tack a hefty surcharge on credit-card purchases. Shops, restaurants, and streets are always crowded between 10 am and 2 pm, but slow down in the evening. Traditionally, stores are open from 9 to 1 (except Sunday) and 5 to 9, but those nearest the pier tend to stay open all day, particularly during high season. Most shops are closed Sunday morning.

When you shop for souvenirs, be sure you don't buy anything made with black coral. Not only is it overpriced, it's also an endangered species, and you may be barred from bringing it to the United States and other countries.
