Very pleasant shopping experience. They also have disposable underwater cameras which are hard to find in Cozumel. Be sure to walk all the...More

If you've only had vanilla extract from the US then you should try the Mexican vanilla from Los Cinco Soles. You'll never care for the US vanilla again, at least that's our opinion. (I know... everybody has one) Great shop for knick knacks, usually at...More
