The shopping shuttle takes you to a shopping area similar to an outdoor mall. The prices are fixed, but my husband loves to haggle and always bargains with the shop owners for our coffee. (We do buy 20-40 pounds so we like to get a discount.) You also have the option of shopping at the resort. There are a couple of stores there and they are fixed pricing. There are a few local vendors who come by during the week to show their wares. You are always welcome to haggle with them or there is always the option to pay the price they are asking.
Last year we were with a couple who wanted to buy a wooden giraffe, but neither of them are comfortable haggling. As I mentioned earlier my husband loves to haggle. So he offered to bargain with the vendor for them and got them a terrific deal. So ask around and see if you can find anyone who might be willing to bargain for you.
The shopping trip has things like t-shirts, shot glasses, coffee, liquor, coffee cups, and stuff like that. The on-site stores have the same things. The vendors have wood carvings and beaded jewelry, mainly hand-made items.
