  • Markets

    Cancún Shopping

    This is the market where the locals go. It is called Market 23. It is a bit difficult to find and some of the venders can't speak English. We had to ask a few times before we received enough directions to find it, but it was worth the trouble. We found some great buys on hand painted pottery, masks, and other such local crafts. Local crafts are the...

    Playa del Carmen Shopping

    I always like visiting grocery stores when traveling, you can find some interesting things to eat and occasionally something to bring back for friends and family. Just south of Juarez Avenue on highway 307 is Chedraui, a large supermercado selling groceries, liquor, some clothes, small appliances, household products, etc. There's also a small...

    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...

    Mazatlán Shopping

    I priced good tequila (Anejo) in town and it cost as much as at home in California! Finally on our way out, I got a decent deal at the airport. It was about $32 for a bottle that would retail for $50 in the U.S.

    Oaxaca de Juárez Shopping

    Provided you don't have claustrophobia or an aversion to people invading your space and hassling you to buy stuff, you can get some pretty good deals. 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. Depends on what...

    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.

    Oaxaca de Juárez Shopping

    I collect Nativity scenes, and the ones from South and Central America appeal to me particularly. I found my Mexican one in Oaxaca. The choice was huge, themed in every colour imaginable, but I liked this little rustic one - its natural colours and naive charm were more to my taste than the rich reds, purlpes, emerald greens, etc of others I...

    I remember we bought 4 paintings of this local artist. As you can see from the picture he was painting on these tiles using only paint and his finger nail!!! They were amazing landscape pictures of the local area and they worked out to be only $20 Canadian. It was a steal and they look great to this day. They were even framed.

    I was recently scammed at the Mega in San Jose. I used a 100-peso note for a 49-peso purchase. The clerk rang it up as a 50 and handed me one peso in change. 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...

It is simple if you want to relax ignore them by putting on your glasses or a quick no gracias and you are find. If you like what they have, ask "how many pesos?" :-) Oakley sunglasses, hammocks, sculptures, t-shirts, dolls. My rule was half of what they...

    Curio Shops are filled with a fascinating mix of old and new inventory. Walking through any of these shops tells a history of the tastes held by visitors for at least fifty years.

  • Tricks for the trade

    Bargaining is a characteristic of Mexican commerce. Even in stores with "fixed" prices bargaining may be productive. For tourists it is best to act as if all prices are negotiable. The best places for negotiation are markets, stalls and small stores, but certainly you should bargain with street vendors, tour operators and corrupt police officers if...

  • Mexican crafts

    I defy even the most miserly or budget-conscious traveller to leave Mexico without buying something! The range of crafts produced is truly amazing, many of them very local. Some are very traditional and were being made long before the advent of tourism; others, that may seem just as traditional, are much newer in their inception but that doesn't...

    When shopping for gifts to take back home don't forget to bargain! Mexicans are known for that. Acourse you can not bargain in large department stores or in most of the stores of the shopping center where the prices are established by the company. But in Playa del Carmen where the small local shops are spread out across streets you have to open...

  • Bargaining in Markets

    I was shy to bargain at first but being recruited by a group of Lebanese tourists as a translator in Acapulco helped me learn first hand how to do it. The key to bargain is to be reasonable and polite. Bargaining in markets is usually expected but tourists from some places are not so accostumed to it. The vendor will state a price after being...
