I decided to show my daughter some of the marketing in Mexico. Unfortunately, the marketing of 26 years ago, is gone with the times. The jewelry store “Fire Opalo Company” is literally the first store that you get sucked into shopping. It seems that they...More

This is a place to go. I would strongly recommend walking through the entire mercado before stopping to purchase/barter; many of the stalls sell similar items (purses, dresses, etc.). Yes, the vendors can be a bit pushy, but that's part of the experience. For the...More

Come here for the trinkets and t-shirts, but be ready to haggle. Number one piece of advice: USE PESOS. There are places to exchange there that are far better then the resorts. You will get a much better price in their currency vs. US dollars....More
