  • very close to the VWM, walk across the street, many vendors, including Starbucks and a pharmacy. Outdoor vendors on weekends, convenient  more »
  • We were staying at The Riu Tequila so it was a nice stroll after dinner to do some window shopping. A variety of shops, minimarts, chemist, gift and clothes, not the hassle like 5th Ave.  more »

  • 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.
  • Great for tourist window shopping as well as finding a lot of cheap street vendors
  • 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.
