    Downtown Mexico City

    Downtown Mexico City.

    There are only a couple shopping centers and a lot of speciality stores street by street.

    Also you will find popular markets and thousands of street vendors.

    Not only for conventional shopping.

    Polanco Neighbourhood.

    Polanco

    Polanco Neighbourhood.

    This once quiet residential neighbourhood now is filled with offices and apartments buildings, hotels, restaurants, chic boutiques, and shopping centers.

    For a sophisticated dose of modern Mexico City, visitors should head to Polanco neighbourhood to spend the afternoon or just shopping.

    Everything is very expensive.

    Zona Rosa.

    Hamburgo St. at Amberes St.

    Zona Rosa (Pink Spot).

    Shopping is one of the favorite pastimes for many Mexico City visitors and Paseo de la Reforma (Reforma Boulevard) is filled with a wide range of stores focused to tourists, mainly along its central extension.

    Most of the superior and deluxe category hotels are located here, as well as the city's finest restaurants, historic landmarks, public buildings, bars and shops.

    Just for conventional shopping is Zona Rosa but remember that everything is very expensive.

    You'll also find the highest concentration of beggars anywhere in the city.

    by bloorange Written Aug 25, 2003

    Just the best place in Mexico city in order to find nice and cheap mexican furniture. Alibaba's cavern would look quite empty if compared to! Prices are very good too, the cheapest place in the city!

    What to buy: Mexican furniture (seats, tables, sofas...)
    Local craft
    Lamps
    and so many more...

    Centro de Artesanias La Cuidadela: Local crafts

    by leffe3 Written Oct 28, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Large craft market full of stalls and mini shops offering the whole gamut of Mexican crafts at very reasonable prices.

    What to buy: Anything and everything you are into to - dyed sarapes, tin ware, fantastically kitsch Day of the Dead stuff, lacquerware, silver jewelry, masks, basketware.

    What to pay: You can of course bargain, although remember that the prices are already lower than other parts of Mexico City anyway.

    Indian Market

    At the square next to the Cathedral Metropolitana, you see kind of an Indian market. So this is a place where you can buy all kind of Indian souvenirs. You can see the local Indians in traditional dresses making all kind of handicraft.

    Malls

    There are several large malls in Mexico City. The nicest of them are Centro Comercial (CC) Santa Fe, Parque Duraznos in Bosques (small but ultra-modern), Pabellon Bosques (not so much for shopping than ice skating :), CC Perisur, Palacio de Hierro in Polanco, CC Plaza Satelite (huge and crowded), Mundo E (in Satelite with a couple of discos).

    This arts market is across from Plaza Jose Morelos and has anything you could possibly want in terms of souveniers to bring home.
