Puerto Quetzel Marketplace

Many vendors, good selection, minimal urging to purchase from the merchants. I've purchased woven items here before and the quality and durability has been impressive. I'm not a "shopper" but I always look forward to being able to browse here whenever we are able to visit.

Free access granted to all who would answer a tourism survey, but many took them up on the offer and as a result the internet was about as slow as the ship's.

Colorful, Easy Shopping

The items I purchased were table place mats, with an inline-woven design and more of the shoulder bags that are sold as glasses cases, with a zipper pocket area on top. What these are really good for are iPhones; the bags are well-padded and the zippered compartment easily holds several credit cards, licenses, etc. This year's model was slightly longer than the ones I bought two years ago; my guess is they are now intended as phone cases and the new iPhones are a little longer. The over-shoulder cord looks thin but I've been using one of these for a couple of years now and neither the cord nor the edging on the bag show any signs of wear.

The design used as a background to the pages in this section of the blog is taken from one of my bags and softened in intensity for purposes of a page background. The actual colors are vibrant and bold.
