I am going to Key West, Cozumel, Grand Caymen and Ocho Rios. I would like to get some souveneirs for my three children (ages 6 (twins) and 5). I am NOT a T-shirt or hat sort of person. I would really like to get something unique, but kid friendly for each of them. Are there any suggestions of what to get and where? My son is hinting for a carved mask or something. How much would something like that run?
Thanks Lisa for the ideas on Grand Caymen. Especially since I will be going to Sting Ray City.
Will there be anyplace to shop if I go to Chichen Itza tour? (from Cozumel). My kids are showing the most interest in Mexico. Wouldn't have anything to do with the fact they have the Scooby Doo video "Monster of Mexico" would it? I really don't want to miss the shopping experience of Cozumel if I take that tour.
There is a little bit of shopping at the ruins. You could get one of their aztec calenders to go on their wall. They are neat, my friend brought me one back from their trip there.
Key West will probally have some shops that have stuff for kids. Cozumel also has a store right were ship docks that has really cute mexican dolls(if you have girls). I picked one up for my niece one year. I forget what the store is called but they have one at the dock and downtown.
You wont have much time to shop if you go to ruins. We havent done the ruins, but some friends have. They only had time to do some shopping at the ruins. You may have time to run through some shops at the dock.
Okay, thank you for that info. Now I have to make a big decision whether to stay at Cozumel and shop and go to Chankanaab Park. Or go to the ruins and see and learn about acient history. Aaaaggghhhhh!!!! I want to do both.
Guess I will just have to go back again another time eh? Good luck convincing DH of that (I am going with a group of women in my family).
Check out Del Sol. They have all kinds of stuff where the color changes / comes out in sunlight. Tees, hats, plastic jewelry, hair accessories, nail polish (though it always peeled off my nails), sunglasses, bags, etc. Kids get a kick out of the stuff.
