Pama Cozumel | History


PAMA DUTY FREE first opened its doors well over 50 years ago, and since then, it has been a family-owned and operated business going nowadays in its third generation.

It started as a General Store covering the needs of local people with products ranging from food supplies to motorcycles.

During the 70s as the cruise ship industry emerge, Cozumel began positioning as one of the top tourist destinations in this industry. Our new visitors began to demand new types of products and services, so PAMA evolved and focused on offering Luxury articles.

Throughout five decades we have acquired a large variety of the best brands in Perfume and Cosmetics, Branded Jewelry and Watches, Fine Gifts, Electronics, Fashion Accessories, etc. in order to offer our customers a wide selection of luxury products always at the best prices.
