Please don't buy stuff around the square. These vendors at the collectivo are sometimes, really artists, and others are just honest people trying to make a living. I know foot traffic will really pick up when the Chedraui supermarket is finished, but many of the...More

Nice souvenirs and handicrafts. Our girls bought a few things that they couldn't resist. There is some haggling involved, as usual, but the people are friendly.

We were suggested to take a taxi to PM for the restaurants and the town but were disappointed. Wouldn't do it again, too small not anything we could see to do. Did eat at the Pelicanos and it was very good.

Note that this stretch of shaded shops is NOT the same as the "flea market" also listed here on TA. We came looking for Mayan handicrafts. Unique were woodcarvings, some jewelry, and "jellyfish" lamps. (English-speaking) Gabriel has a space exclusively devoted to wall art made...More
