  • I love to shop here. Becareful though, you will be dropped off at Plaza 28 which is not the same thing. I always buy my jewerly here! The people are friendly and deal fairly!  more »
  • For those who like a camel style 25 March in São Paulo is very good, besides you know the real Mexican people, and not just horteleira zone.

  • Read somewhere that you need to be mentally prepared. Could not be a more truer word written. Wow, do they harass you for the money in your wallet! What an experience and a must visit place when visiting Cancun. Be prepared! Give them hell!!! Always bargain....prices can start at 1000 pesos and you will end up paying half that...if you pay less than half, you are a born negotiater! The leather goods are really good quality...others....mmmmm. not so sure.
  • I love these places. Yes they are items for tourists but prices are better than the hotel zone. And if you take your time you can find quality things and bargin for a good price. These photos are just for the beautiful array of colors.
