Puerto Vallarta Shopping

Puerto Vallarta Shopping

In Puerto Vallarta you will find some of the most exciting and unique shopping opportunities offered in Mexico. Beautiful Mexican handicrafts including silver, blown glass, pottery, serapes, sandals and other arts and crafts are all available in Puerto Vallarta. There are a number of excellent shops -- some near the beach, some in major hotels, and a great many on the main downtown shopping strips, Juarez and Morelos. Beach vendors are also very common, particularly on the main beaches in Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta.

Shopping on Puerto Vallarta

The city has hundreds of shops where visitors can purchase, designer fashions, trinkets, sombreros, collector crafts and art from all over Mexico and beyond. Everything is available -- from the exquisite yarn and intricate bead work of the Huichol Indians to upscale Nuevo Mexican home furnishings. Since Mexico is the worlds largest producer of silver, you will find excellent values on jewelry of every description. (Sterling silver will always have .925 stamped on it.) Bargaining over prices is expected, but be cautioned, the Mexicans are experts at this.

Choose your venue: a bazaar-like flea market, the quaint shops of Viejo Vallarta ("Old Town") or the slick boutiques of the malls - Marina Vallarta, for instance. Bartering is expected in local markets, but not in the stores.

The Mercado Municipal ("Flea Market"): On the Rio Cuale, just north of town, you'll find the two-story marketplace crammed with vendors. Test your bartering skills for leather goods, silver jewelry, souvenirs, and local handicrafts.

Downtown Shopping: Shops can be found on most every street and alley but they're concentrated on Juarez and Morelos Streets. Look for silver, blown glass, pottery, arts and crafts, and sandals. Resist the hand-made furniture and home furnishings unless the shop can arrange shipping for you.

Malls: Villa Vallarta, Plaza Marina, and Plaza Neptuno are just a few of the shopping plazas and malls around town. Expect to see much of what you'd see at home.
