  • go deeper into the 5th, somewhat rip offs but cool people
  • Nice selection on little shops people are friendly. And if you want to book an excursion go see Leo at his stall very nice man.
  • It's the only shopping center in Playacar that is conveniently located for the big named hotels in Playa del Carmen. This is where non- walkers or adventureless tourist go to do their souvenir shopping.
  • The typical tourist trap with still better prices than the hotels around. Good in case of emergencies, but it makes more sense to buy in a supermarket. It's always recommended to negotiate.
  • Great for tourist window shopping as well as finding a lot of cheap street vendors
