Hello, i am going to cozemel and progresso, yucaton...if anyone has an comments on things i need to see or must have's that i need to look for to bring back please share...im hoping to find some great stuff shopping!!!
The Yucatan peninsula has an indiginous, natural fibre that is made into a fabric similar to linen. You should be able to find men's shirts (called guayaberas) in the shops in Merida. They are very cool to wear since they breathe! I have several of them. I too agree about the Vanilla. The other thing to consider is Mexican chocolate (look for the brand name "Abuelita").
Don't forget the best tequila can be found in Mexico and is cheap..also silver items are usually priced well as well as souveniers made of what appears to be marble -think it's called alabaster. They have anything from chess sets, candle holders, ash trays, and soooo much more-makes great inexpensive gifts. Have a great time.
