We always find fun things here!

We really like shopping here since the vendors aren't as aggressive and obnoxious as they are at Old Port. We always find interesting and unique things in the shops here.

This street of shops is a great place to find your take home items, whether they are dishes, glasswork, art, shell creatures, hats, etc. This area is certainly more laid back that the Malecon area as others have mentioned. You get less pressure and more room to move around. During the day, it is safe to walk around even with... More

What is a trip to Puerto Penasco without a visit to Rodeo Drive?!?! It is usually not crowded and store owners are very nice.

Stopped here on a Sunday on our way to Cholla Bay and it was quiet, peaceful and fun. So much so that my husband was able to pull out one of our beach chairs & set it up in the shade of a closed-up building, sipping his beer while I traipsed up and down the streets thru all the shops.... More

If you love collecting Mexican talavera pottery, this is the mother lode! Anything from giant planters, planters shaped as rabbits, donkeys, frogs, pigs, trays, dishes, bowls, sinks, kitchen canisters, etc. are abundant in Artemio's shop - and he packs it up nicely for you in cardboard boxes. The Dirt Mall is also called Shack's Fifth Avenue, Rodeo Drive, or on... More

We missed this on the first trip to Puerto Penasco but will not miss it again. Unlike the other shopping area, this seemed to be much more laid back and the vendors let you look without hounding you so much. It also had what appeared to be a greater selection of items. The only downside was that there was not... More

Just when you think you've seen it all, a new shop appears that takes your breath away with a refreshing assortment of items with which to decorate and enhance your home with the unique Mexican touches that you love. Su Casa offers a first class variety of choices at affordable prices. You won't find the same old thing that every... More

I made a wonderful discovery the last time I was down in "Rocky Point". There is a whole area that has been revitalized. Its called Cholla Mall or 'Rodeo Drive'. It was full of fun shopping. My favorite was Su Casa. It had great gifts, wonderful 'stuff' to decorate my home. The prices were all over the ballpark, so I... More

Although the Trip Advisor locator map for Cholla Mall is hundreds of miles off (as are most of the Puerto Penasco attraction maps) this local "Rodeo Drive" tourist shopping center is very easy to find by turning west off Blvd. Benito Juarez (Hwy 8 into town) at the Avenida Revolucion traffic signal. Formerly Cholla Mall was a "captive audience" situation... More
