buying a camera?

So my camera battery is dead and I forgot my charger. We still have 5 days left of our vacation so I want to take a lot of pictures... any idea where I could buy another charger or a cheap camera while I am here ?

I would say Mega would be your best bet for selection.

Electronics is to the left after you enter the store.

Fujifilm on Av. 30 at Calle 1 Sur -- in the Burger King/Banamex shopping plaza or maybe Sam's Club if you have access to a membership card..

If pulbicized, you may be able to borrow a compatible charger for your camera battery...

Are you sure your camera won't use standard batteries? Ours will take either recharables or standard.

Try phoning Tati Biermas.....the lady who does "Cozumel PhotoTours". She knows everything about all cameras. Great possibility that she would have a charger or know where you can borrow one. If not, she will absolutely know where you can get the best deal on a new purchase.

Thanks everyone. I took Tati's tour before my camera died (she was awesome by the way) so I will reach out to her !

It may sound strange but the OXXO on 30th next to the gas station has a decent selection of universal chargers. I've been in your situation myself and had to look all over, and this place had some good options. It's close to the Fujifilm shop mentioned by DS2, which is also a possibility.
