Close to where the ships dock in Progreso there are a few good shops, and although that's all we did for shopping there, I did see a big outdoor market with lots of souvenirs and other things in the town. Cozumel has lots of shopping, I heard you actually have to go into town if you really want to do some good shopping, but they do have a ton of stores very close to the pier, within walking distance. I've never been to Costa Maya.

We went to Cozomel, Grand Cayman and Pregresso last Feb. I think the best deals were to be found in Progresso. Not alot of shopping there, but the people there seemed to deal more than in Cozomel and Grand Cayman.

Got a double lounge swing there for 20.00 as compared to almost 40.00 in Cozomel. One of the shop owners in Progresso where we got some silver jewelry even gave us a carry case for the swing and each a free beer when we purchased the silver.

Just my opinion.
