    Fresh fish of the Day

    Spend acouple hours touring the Central Market. This is the market the local people use to sell to the tourist. It is a treasure of culture experience. What a wonderful people the Mexican people are. They are smart, charming, happy, and above all industrious. Enjoy the flower market, enjoy the animals, the fish markets, and of course the many crafts made right before your eyes. Watch as they make the Pinatas. Have fun. Take a taxi and enjoy yourself

    The best and cheapest store in Acapulco is WalMart on the east end of the Costera close to the Base. Other comprehensive stores are all up and down the Costera: Aurera, Comercial, Gigante. Across from the Zocalo is a Woolworths. On the west side there is Carrefour on Avd. Pie de la Cuesta just before Ejido. The absolute cheapest store is WALDOs (like the 99 cent stores in L.A.) on Aquiles Serdan.

    If you want silver jewelry, visit Linda de Taxcos in the Old Acapulco area. She will provide free transportation to her shop. Also, make sure you ride the shotover jetboat. Spend some time in the Condessa Beach area shopping and walking around.
    Plenty of photo opportunities on the beach and in the flea market. If you visit Linda's, you will be offered free beverages (Corona, Bottled Water, Coke, Diet Coke) and a clean bathroom. Right next to flea market so take a few minutes to walk around and look.

    In Taxco, we would recommmend to visit La Mina, where you can find bargain sterling silver jewelry. La Mina is the only store that has mine. A free tour into the excavation site where you can find various stones and rocks of different sizes and colors. To get there, look for the sign Arkos on a minibus, or you can take taxi. Most drivers are familiar with the store.

    Another suggested store to buy bargain sterling silver jewelry is in Mercado de Artesanias Plata located in the flea market of Taxco behind St. Prisca Churh.
