We were staying at The Riu Tequila so it was a nice stroll after dinner to do some window shopping. A variety of shops, minimarts, chemist, gift and clothes, not the hassle like 5th Ave.

We have been shopping here since 2011. Love the little shops and access to our resort. Very convenient if you need some toiletries or meds or just the unique souvenir. This year they doubled in size with a net 2 story addition. There is also a Starbucks there if you need your coffee fix.

We did not pay for any tours. Instead we walked from our resort to this cute shopping area. A group of 5 women and we loved this area. We were all able to buy items for loved ones back home, husbands and children (ages 2-9) at this place. Great variety of "Oh no I forgot my sunglasses!" to "I want... More

We did enjoy some nice chocolate and strawberry milk for our three year old, as well as a new crocodile toy for him. I'm sure that what I'm about to share is an isolated experience: On the flip side, we had a very creepy experience in one of the stores in the back left corner - I wish I would... More

The best thing about the plaza is a man from the Dominican Republic who does reflexology massage. I had the "fish pedicure" and foot massage, best money I spent there!

We went to this plaza which was about 10 minute walk from the Reef Playacar. It is two storey. We like it a way better than 5th Ave (downtown Playa del Carmen) They had nicer stores (instead of stores we can shop at in Canada) and the people were friendly and not pushy. Some of the stores you could bargain... More

With Plaza Playacar right across the street from our resort, we couldn't help but walk over to check out the souvenir shops. With everything from Starbucks to massages, wallets and sombreros, the variety was endless. A lot of the shops and stands sold duplicate items, but each owner was polite and social, not pushy or annoying, while we browsed their... More

These little stores are directly across from Rui Palace Mexico. The best part is the Starbucks! All the little stands offer most of the same souvenirs. The owners were polite, not too pushy, they would let you haggle to get a better deal.

We were staying in Playacar, and ran out of time to head into town for some final souvenir shopping. So we walked to the Plaza Playacar. A nice selection of items, but some of the prices were high, and we were told by multiple shop-owners that their prices were "fixed". We've haggled all over the world, including other parts of...
