Thrifty Treasures and DIY Plans

These chemistry flasks. 4 for $5.

Playa del Carmen is a great place to shop with shops, flea market style with restaurants just a block from the beach! There is also a 30 min. ferry boat ride to more shopping in Cozumel! We did have to buy an extra bag to check in at the airport. 🙂
Souvenirs!
