    Im am going to go on a limb and guess you should likely buy them at home or on ebay! Most high end things, such as coach bags and louis vitton bags in cancun can cost MORE in cancun than you would spend at home! Some things you can get very cheap in cancun such as alcohol, tshirts, gifts, knick knacks like that, however more high end stuff.........you will likely pay more for! So if I was you, I would hit up ebay or buy them where you live!

    From my experience, using the US Dollar down there, buying somewhat high-end to very high-end items is more expensive than at home here. As Jason said, you can get good deals on some stuff down there with things that are produced in Mexico being some of the best deals. Tequila for example is quite a bit cheaper there than it is at home.

    From what I know, stuff like you are talking about buying are fairly expensive in relative terms in England as it is so the price difference may be more favorable to you. I am not sure though. Either way, you probably wont find any deals that will make it worth too much trouble going through. And you may have a hard time finding a particular item you are looking for as well.

    I think you'll find them on the expensive side in Cancun.

    I'd try ebay or order them online.

    You obvioulsy won't have them for your trip but you won't be paying an arm and a leg for them either.

    Hello Dave,

    I used to pay 70 US dollars for my Lacoste Polo shirts in Miami, down here in Cancun I pay 120 USD or about 60 quid! 50 dollars more! So buy them in England for sure!

    From what I remember, I do not recall seeing a Timberland store or any stores carrying Timberland shoes while I was down there. Then again I was not looking specifically for them either.

    Another option might be to have someone buy them for you in the US and then ship them over to you marked as a gift or something to avoid nasty customs charges. Thats if the price over here would be significantly lower than over there in the UK.
