buying souvenirs

Where is the best place to buy souvenirs at the CAT? I would assume that the gift shop is overpriced,but is there a certain vendor(s) that come to the hotel? Is there a particular shop or vendor in Puerto Adventuras? My kids are already asking what they're going to get, lol.

Vendors come to the pool area every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday evening. Even a couple were there on a rainy Friday evening. We also went to the shops in Puerto Aventuras and spent and afternoon evening in Playa Del Carmen. Usual souvenirs that are available in Mexico available at vendors and in Playa Del Carmen. A few small clothing shops and souvenir shops near the marina. There are also 4 shops at the resort itself. The good thing about this is if you forget or need anything it is available for purchase.

hairdesigner, as fabulous_ mentioned, vendors are at the cat, those evenings and have very nice displays, and priced about like any of the other shops. Check out the shops in PA, then maybe take a trip to Playa, but be prepared to be pressured some if your looking at jewelry, they really seem to hound you even if you say no and walk out of there shop, we've even had them come after us and almost beg to come back and bargain w/them, just a heads-up! Maybe even a day trip to cozumel, for other shops. pretty sure we're going to do that when we get there, 1st wk in feb, cant wait...
