Top ChoiceShopping in Puerto MorelosArtisans Market
The hammocks sold here differ from what you'll find elsewhere because they're created right here in Puerto Morelos by a local family that's been making them for decades. (Ask for Mauricio or Martin!) You can also buy dream catchers, alebrijes (colorful wooden animal figures from San Martín Tilcajete), handbags, masks, jewelry and more. It’s refreshingly low-key and you can often see the craftspeople at work. They're happy to let you lie down in a hammock or hammock-chair. Unlike other stores or markets nearby, here the shops are owner-owned, meaning you can generally get a better deal and your money goes directly to the merchants, rather than to a big business.
