Riviera Maya Journal #11 - Shopping - Larry Widen

For people who love to browse in markets and boutiques, Riviera Maya offers an endless array of places to do just that. When you need to get out of the sun for a few hours, you'll find a number of opportunities to go shopping.

As you leave the archaeological park of Tulum, there's a fun little enclave of merchants who operate an open-air arts and crafts market right along the road that leads in and out of the historic district. Some of the goods are unique to the area while others can be purchased at a number of places. Wood carvings, native jewelry, serapes and blankets are in abundance. As in all other areas of Mexico, prices fluctuate from item to item, and you may find one thing is cheaper here while another is more expensive. Let the bargaining begin!
