I enjoyed my visit to Playas and even eat some good tamales. The area has plenty of places to eat, drink, and listen to live music. The ocean view was wonderful.

Comparing to the americanized plaze santa cecilia this felt not that touristy, you did not have to stop every second because people forced you to buy stuff. All the mexicans are really friendly and helpful here.

Lots to look at but It was too much for me as a tourist for buying. There was food, pottery, candles, and any trinket you could imagine.

This market is pretty much a big bazaar. You find everything from fresh groceries to clothing, souvenirs, medicine etc... If you want to get a taste of the Mexican culture this is a great place to check out and get some good colorful pictures too....More

Google it. Easy to get there. Make sure your cell phone internet works there so you can get maps and navigate. I've gotten lost several times in TJ ( it's apart of the adventure) and now I know my way around.
