Kind of disappointing, typical stuff you can get anywhere in Mexico. There were a few unique items but not enough to recommend making a special trip. I didn't feel it was worth giving up my time away from the beautiful resort/beach for. The gift shops in the resort had nicer items.

Also most of the items were not unique but what I could have gotten in my hotel gift shop, though at a higher... More

We were there a few times. Most of the goods on sale are what you see every where in mexico. However they have very nice mayan shirts and children wear at very reasonable prices. There is also on artisan that makes interesting lamps.

There are a number of "craft markets" around Puerto Morelos. This is the place where most of the work you see is done by local people - in many cases, right on site. The textile work is very nice - we own several blankets and tablecloths purchased here. Sometimes we see other visitors bargaining for prices here, but honestly, the... More

This is the place to get your gifts for people. The individuals here are fantastic and their goods are beautiful. You can even ask to see the looms for the blankets and hammocks while you are looking to buy something.

We enjoyed visiting the Collectivo. Many of the crafts are the same items from the different vendors, but they are talented and the prices are much better than in the hotel gift shop. And you can meet the artist.

We spent an afternoon in Puerto Morelos and found this artisans' collective to be one of the best shopping opportunities during our trip. In particular, we were impressed with the man seen in the photos below. I wished we had written down his name in order to give him the credit he deserves. He was mentioned by name in the... More
