Has anyone been off the beaten path in Cozumel? Someone was telling us that there is a (market) much like the flea markets in the states but, that it is away from the tourist (main shopping plaza) where most everyone shops.
Thanks in advance for any info.
I know of a great flea market-type of marketplace in Merida (Progreso port) that has great deals in all kinds of textiles, clothing, food, etc... But I don't know of such a thing in Cozumel. Perhaps you'll be going to Progreso and can experience the marketplace in Merida--great fun! It's just a few blocks away from the zocala (town square).
Yes i think i know where this flea market is . I felt a little out place their , people stop what they were doing and started staring at these 2 white people coming in the. While many of them wanted to trade stuff for my new Nike gym shoes i had bought before the trip
Its funny what you said about the sneakers, because when we were in Cozumel the last time we were talking to a local, he was telling us that basketball sneakers go for 400.00 dollars-no pecos-in mexico. He said tis virtually impossable to get stuff like that imported there.
