  • La Isla Shopping Village

    Cancún Shopping

    Even though you are not the type of person who like shopping a lot, you will feel like you'll miss something if you didn't go here. I would suggest you to go to La Isla shopping village in the evening time when all the decoration lights are on. You wouldn't believe that you were shopping in Mexico!! This shopping mall is well organized and well...

    Puerto Vallarta Shopping

    This two story maze of shops is laden with everything "Mexican." One of the stalls we frequented was the Artesanias Los Gemelos run by Dora. Here you can find scores of T-shirts, silver jewelry, leather goods, hundreds of handicraft items and home-style lunches. The rule of the day is to barter for the best price, but beware the sales people are...

    Basic souvenir shop that also sales jewelry. Be careful as the will try to sell you silver telling you it is white gold. Does seem to have nice blankets at an expensive price.

    An older building was renovated and turned into a mini-mall, with lots of small booths inside. Most of them will probably not interest tourists very much, but the second floor has a nice variety of offerings in the food court.

When they first see you are a foreigner, the shop owners will try to overcharge you, but if you speak a few words of Spanish and can haglle a bit, you can get some prety good buys.

    We were early for our tour, so my grandmother told me to go and look in the shop. I saw this turtle but it was marked $100. I thought that was too much. My grandmother told me to ask how much it was in US dollars. They said it was $4.00. So I bought it.

    Grocery store on the outskirts of town. It is frequented by the local residents so it must be good. The meat section looks quite good and the vegetables are a step above El Pescado.

Since I was certain I had only new bills straight from the ATM I knew I had nothing smaller than a 100; so I called her on it. Other customers (Mexicans) tried to help me, but to no avail. She...

They also have t-shirts, socks and hats. You can order them and buy...
