Default Chess sets

I am going to Key West, Grand Caymen, Cozumel and Ochio Rio. Where will I find the most unique chess sets for good prices? I love the look of carved wood especially.

I've never looked for carved wood, but , in Cozumel you can get Onyx chess sets for very reasonable prices. I made the mistake however of buying three on one cruise and then had to carry about 30 pounds of onyx chess sets home.
We paid less than $20.00 each for really nice black and white onyx set with an onyx board. Paid about $5.00 for a set of black and white checkers to go with each .

Hi Tammy,
I've always seen many of them in Cozumel.
