I actually stopped in three different locations in Playa del Carmen. It's nice to see some different styles of jewelry than all the other shops. Prices are good- I bought a gorgeous pareo for 14.50 U.S! They also sell beautiful large paper stars that you can fit with a light bulb and cord and they make for some great ambience... More

My daughter and fried had tried the fish spa a few years ago so my husband and I decided to try it as well! Our feet and lower legs were cleansed and then went into the tank! Immediately the little fish began to get to work! It was igjtly thickly with an almost effervescent feel! For $10 per person it... More

Just as everyone else said the Fish Spa is the main draw but they have a lot of great clothes. My wife looked for a good 30 mins and I actually had to pull her out because I was getting to warm since they didn't have AC. The customer service in the store is awesome!!!

If anything the fish spa is a really good reason to visit the Wayan store. After you've had your spa experience you can feel free to browse through the store. The store has really unique items, albeit a bit expensive. The staff at the store are nice and will help find you what you're looking for.

I'm not sure which Wayan property we went to - I think there are five on 5th Avenue - but it was awesome! The store was on multiple floors and there are surprises around every turn! Do not hesitate to experience the fish spa! The attendant is very knowledgeable and explains the process and the history of the fish while... More

We were walking down 5th Ave and just walking in each shop to see what we could find. This is when we found the Fish Spa. The idea was instilled in my brain while my wife walked around and shopped. As we were walking out I asked how much it was going to cost, almost jokingly because I thought the... More

The fish-spa brought us in, the constant lurking of the employees drove us out. After walking around the store, I realized that one employee or another had been following us around- watching everything we picked up and looked at and it became clear why. This was extremely distasteful and definitely something I've never even experienced in the States...especially considering we... More

Shop here without the constant pressure. Fixed prices but very reasonable. Good selection of hats, clothing and arts. We bought hats. We did not do the fish spa but watched others...very interesting.

This store caught my eye because of the two fish spas at the front and I think that is a big draw card for them. It is a big store filled with typical Mexican clothing and textiles. You can get some reasonably priced souvenirs here. You were greeted but not hassled which I liked. Nice store to pop into.

Sad for the locals trying to make a living, but I got quite annoyed by everyone wanting me to shop in their stores. I found Wayan to be different, NO PRESSURE. It had quality merchandise, reasonable prices and with a helpful staff. The atmosphere was also a plus, very cute stores.,
