I think we would be rich if we got a peso for each time visitors asked us this question. With hundreds of stores to visit, and so many ‘Mexican products’ for sale in all Riviera Maya cities and villages, we understand that tequila shot glasses that say Playa del Carmen, or a t-shirt that says ‘My grandma went to Akumal and all she brought me was this t-shirt’ is not what you are looking to buy to remember your vacation in paradise.
Good News . There are a lot of local stores in Riviera Maya cities that have that perfect souvenir for you. There are also lots of great stores that have one of a kind, locally made gifts that you just may want to bring back for a family member or friend. And we know where they are!
If you are looking for run of the mill cheapie souvenirs, this is not the list for you. If you want reasonably prices authentic gifts, this IS the list for you.
We will sort this list of shops by city. By no means is this list complete, but it will get you started.
