Cozumel is a tropical island paradise located about an hour south of Cancun off the coast of Playa del Carmen. The island is a popular cruise ship port and boasts natural beauty like the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System right off shore, white sand beaches and the warm, sparkling Caribbean Sea. Cozumel was also very important to the Mayan civilization, so ancient history abounds on the island. Available activities including scuba diving and snorkeling, swimming with dolphins, bar hopping tours, salsa dancing, sailing tours, charter fishing, and more.
If you dock in Cozumel during your cruise, you'll want to see the best the island has to offer, and of course you'll want to go shopping as well! Luckily there is plenty of shopping available within close proximity of the major cruise ship piers, Punta Langosta, the International Pier and Puerta Maya.
If you don't feel like straying far from your ship, Puerta Maya, Punta Langosta Mall and Royal Village Cozumel are perfect. If you want to experience a little of the real Mexico and see downtown San Miguel (Cozumel's only town), Plaza del Sol, the town square (zocalo) or Avenida Rafael Melgar, the costal avenue, are both great places to do some shopping. While downtown, visit Pama, one of the few legitimate Duty Free Department Stores in the Caribbean that's not located in an airport.
This is just some of the shopping available on the beautiful island of Cozumel. Enjoy your visit!
