The end of the year is near and the holiday season is coming ever closer, along with the Christmas shopping of course! If you are among the lucky ones that are going on holidays to the Mexican Caribbean in the pre-Christmas season, you will not only enjoy a wonderful climate, but also the opportunity to do your Christmas shopping in a different way. Forget all about stress and last minute purchases. Simply enjoy the charming and interesting shopping opportunities you will meet in Mexico!
Why not take advantage of the fact that you are in a place full of colors, traditions and culture? All this is beautifully reflected in the wonderful Mexican handcrafts! Or acquire items from international, renowned brands at very affordable prices, compared with those in other countries.
Both in Cancun and in the Riviera Maya there are plenty of original Mexican crafts shops and markets. You will find from small stalls on the streets to big establishments full of select, wonderful and colorful handicrafts.
Cancun is famous for its large, modern shopping malls, both in the hotel zone and downtown. If you wish for international luxury brands, go to La Isla Shopping Village and the Luxury Avenue at Plaza Kukulkan in the hotel zone. In downtown Cancun, the great Malecon Las Americas is worth visiting. In it you will also find several upscale shops, from L’Occitane to Massimo Dutti to Tous and even an iStore.
Liverpool, a prestigious department store chain with multiple upscale brands also has branches in both Cancun and Playa del Carmen.
If you are looking for jewelry and diamonds, Cancun and the Riviera Maya are also the right places! Small shops with handmade pieces of jewelry or internationally famous stores with fashionable designs, it’s all here!
