La Isla Shopping Village Tips (14)


The largest shopping Center in Cancun is the LA ISLA SHOPPING VILLAGE
It's like walking through a Mexican Caribbean Villa, highlighted by a picturesque man-made river lined on both sides with more than 150 shops offering a variety of products.

La Isla Shopping Mall: Shopping

Haggle,haggle,haggle it is expected from all local vendors. Go to different shops and ask for pricing, prices do vary from shop to shop. Remember that prices go up for all tourist. Negotiate and be firm about what you are offering. If they don't budge so elsewhere.

La Isla Shopping Mall: Big Mall

This mall is in the middle of the Hotel Zone. It has several restaurants including La Casa de las Margaritas (do try that one) as well as many fast food ones like McDonalds and Johnny Rockets. It's on the lagoon which smells very bad there, unfortunately for the restaurant that overlooks it. There's an aquarium as well, if you're interested in bringing the kids there. Do pick up maps at the airport because you'll usually find coupons for the aquarium or the restaurants throughout the mall and Hotel Zone itself.

The mall is easily accessible by bus, using the R-1 route, there's a bus stop right across from it. Taxi prices are high along the Hotel Zone, so if you're staying on one part of the area and need to get anywhere else, it averages about US $7 to US $9. At least with the bus you pay only US $0.75 (they only take Mexican pesos, it's about 70 Pesos)

The stores there are Zara, Massimo Dutti, Diesel - most of them are European and the prices are not far from how much you would pay in Europe or the States. I ended up buying from Zara because I could not find many other places in Cancun where I could buy a nice outfit for going out. Same with bathing suits, we ended up getting ours at the mall. A note on Diesel, while many of the jeans cost about US $160 or so, you can buy some in that store that are made in Mexico and cost only US $60.

What to buy Clothes, shoes, beachwear, etc.
There is a souvenir shop along the same way as Zara, right after the bridge. There you can get fair prices on towels, Cancun clothes, as well as liquors. We found great prices on Don Julio Reposado for just over US $10. Also, there is a tasting station to try some of the liquors available. We picked up a bottle of "La Mestiza Nance Liquor", very good.

La Isla Shopping Mall: A Very Nice Mall

If you like to shop for nice clothing, this is the place to go. It is absolutely beautiful at night. Even if you don't like shipping, it is really nice just to walk around. They also have some great restaurants there. It is a short cab ride from most hotels, a little far to walk in the evening.

We had dinner one evening at La Madonna. A great place. I will do a little write up on that one. It is definitely worth the money.

La Isla Shopping Mall: Nice, outdoor shopping mall

La Isla is probably the nicest shopping mall in Cancun. It's outdoors, with man made canals going through it that try to have something of a Venice feel to it. The shops range from rather upscale European ones like Zara all the way to the chain tourist shop Fiesta, where you can get all the souvenirs you could ever want (they actually have two locations in this mall). There's also an aquarium here, which we didn't go to, and several restaurants. These include some chains like Johnny Rockets, Hooters and McDonalds, along with some local places with nice views of the lagoon. Currently two of the better ones are Elefante (Indian) and a Thai House. That is where the photo in this tip was taken from, during our dinner there.
Sunday nights are fun at the mall, when the locals come to stroll and hang out. There are a lot of families just having fun.

La Isla Shopping Village: An amazing shopping environment

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 designed. There are many different well known brand shops there (e.g. Zara, Gucci, nike, Walner Brothers, etc) and many nice restaurants too.

It is the biggest and nicest shopping village that I found in Cancun.

What to buy They sell handcrafts, boutiques, jewellries, souvenirs, services and others. There are sport bars, restuarants and attractions too.

La Isla Shopping Mall: Okay deals

Fairly upscale mall with souvenir shops, jewelry and clothing stores. The prices aren't too bad at all after comparing them with the street vendors and other area malls. Outdoors so no air conditioning except inside stores.

What to buy Silver, tee-shirts, ceramics.

What to pay $20-50 for quality bracelets. $3-7 for tee-shirts.

La Isla Shopping Village.: The best bit!

La Isla Shopping Village is a great place and the most recent shopping hot spot in the Hotel Zone. You can spend a whole day here because aswell as brand-name shops, there are restaurants, marinas, 5 movie theatres, bars, dance clubs and even a modern aquarium. What more could you ask for?

The shopping village is open everyday from 10am till 10pm.

If you're looking for Mexican-style souvenirs, jewelry, clothing or handicrafts, then 'Plaza La Fiesta' is the place to go. Apparently it's the largest Mexican outlet and is open everyday from 7am till 11pm. There are 2 outlets. One in Cancun and the other in Playa del Carmen.

What to buy Shop around for the latest gift ideas.

La Isla Shopping Mall

There are a number of shopping malls in the Hotel Zone, but you will find better prices downtown. Our favorite shopping mall in the hotel zone is the new La Isla Shopping Village.
