"Souvenir shop in the snorkeling beach of Punta Sur" Bargaining Tip by JMB_FindingNeverland

Bargaining, Isla Cozumel: 7 reviews and 5 photos

  Souvenir shop in Parque Punta Sur's snorkeling bea
by JMB_FindingNeverland

Souvenir shops are all over the place, including the ecological reserve Parque Punta Sur.

I found a set of blouse and skirt (batik made in Indonesia) for US$15. If I knew that I would wear that outfit back home, I would have bought it. It is more of a "resort wear".

The vendor showed us how a conch shell is used as a "trumphet" . The conch shells costs from US$8 and up, depending on the size.

What to buy: There are many batik sarongs. Some shells. There are also some Mayan calendars. The vendor has photo copies of the illustration of Mayan calendar and what each figure in the calendar means.

What to pay: It is a tourist area. Expect to be given the price for a tourist.

Address: Parque Punta Sur
Theme: Other
