Shop, shop, and keep shopping! Great place with an extensive amount of local shops to choose from. Tip to save...don't purchase items immediately upon arrival, from the first ones, you'll find better prices at the shops located further in.

This area is good for shopping, but be sure to get away from Av. Rafael E. Melgar, the main drag along the shore. Much better prices and options are available along 5a Avenida Sur, especially south of Calle 2 Norte. A peanut butter coffee at...More

The stores are amazing, from clothes to sculptures, to wood working, and souvenirs. Even with alittle rain, it was fun. You can walk, take a taxi, and some in our group rented scooters and rode around the island.

Be sure to visit on Sunday evening when the local families come out to celebrate! It is an event for the locals, sot tourists (although of course many tourists attend). Music, vendors, just a great way to experience local culture.

The Plaza is generally very clean with the main street along the shoreline crammed with stores ranging from typical tourist souvenir shops to high end jewelry stores, both local and chain companies. The side streets between the waterfront and the main plaza are mostly locally...More

Depends on which cruise terminal. Carnival's terminal is a 10 minute flat rate cab ride to downtown Cozumel.
