We went to this mall on a raining day, we were looking for internet however the internet office had no internet at the time we were there. The mall is quite pleasant especially if you are looking for souvenirs to bring home. It's also an experience. We took a taxi there but make sure you get your taxi on the... More

People very friendly. Lots of little shops. Staff helpful. Good coffee! Bus stop very close to mall. Souvenirs good prices. Did not like some people soliciting on the street.

The bathrooms are disgusting. There is no excuse for no toilet seats and no toilet paper and no hand soap, especially with the amount of tour buses that go there. They have a bank, nice liquor/cigar store that also has coffee for sale, a small grocery store, a souvenir shop and a bunch of clothing stores.

I thought I might be able to do some serious shopping here but no there isn't much there and what there is you can mostly get in Varadero for half the price. We got off the bus walked round the place and got back on the next one.

We went in after taking the bus a couple times and seeing a lot of people get off at this stop. I was unimpressed. All of the prices were much higher than if you went into the market and there wasn't a huge selection. If you are looking for sunblock though, you can find it here (for $25). The only... More

Don't understand why this would ever be a stop on a tour or the hop on, off bus. Tourist trap, expensive, most stores not open (Monday at two 😒, really?) just not worth your time here in Cuba!

We always stay at Melia Las Americas, so the Plaza America is so convenient for us. We can fin local cuban souvenirs, shops for clothing & purses, Crocs, Cigars, Restaurant, & a grocery store (mercado).

Nice set up, although quite a tourist trap in the making. If you want to see the real side of Cuba, go past Matanzas, where it begins in Havana and onwards.
