Default Pottery in Cozumel

Last cruise I bought some pottery while in Cozumel. The store I went to was several blocks from the pier, but they didn't have any large pieces of pottery. Does anyone know of a shop off the beaten path that has a good selection of pottery (other than Los Cincosoles)? Directions would be helpful, too.

If you know your way around Coz, are you familiar with the area with a large square and the clock along the waterfront? Its known as Plaza area.

It is bordered by Avenue Juarez, Calle 1 South,and Avenue Rafael Melgar.
Turn into that square and there are alot of shops up and down that area.

Thank you for the response.

I believe the shop I went to last year was Peche, which is on Avenida 30 between Calle 6 & 8. As you can see, that is quite a few blocks from the dock. I figured we could walk, but not all streets had street signs, so we made many wrong turns. We walked for at least an hour and never found it. We finally had to hire a taxi to take us there. By then, my husband wasn't happy and just wanted to go back to the ship. I had to quickly chose and make my purchase.

This trip I want to be better organized because he's already told me he doesn't want to walk all over the place again.

I really like the maps you can get from cancunmap.com They are very detailed.
They are working on an updated Coz map that should be out soon.

Default pottery

Calle 1 Sur between 20 y 25 Avenida there is a small whole in the wall that has great pottery.
I also found an awesome store that has great jewelry while I was there. They are new and wanted to put in a good word for Ou lala Boutique on Calle 7, at the exit of Punta Langosta.

Have fun shopping!
