OK every city is Mexico has one of these location for the tourists. It's a fun place at night with plenty to location around to have drinks, dinner and more fun. During the day you can find everything you want to take home here. LOL As always on stuff to buy and take home never pay what they originally ask.... More

I suppose that this was once a "tipico" charming old Malecon, but drunk Americans have pretty much ruined it. Seems to be an alcohol-fueled tourist trap.

The Old Port is a blast. Merchants, booze, and seafood galore. Took advantage of Lucky's $25 all you can drink special. Wow!

This place has a little bit of everything and we stop in regularly in each visit to the area. Don't be afraid to barter a bit.

The selections are out of this world, prices are negotiable. Shrimp/fish/scallopa selection at its best! I accidentally tripped over a ceramic turtle which was not harmed, yet the store owner pestered me well past his store and down the street to pay for damages - I was upset as the object was placed where such an incident could happen and...

I so enjoy Mexico. The people, the food, the culture and the music. But when you get to epicenters of tourist central it shows the worst of any culture. This part is beautiful IF you can ignore all the touts trying to sell you cheap trinkets. The bars have great views and are fun places to enjoy a few drinks... More

We have spent a lot of time in the Old Port area. There are plenty of shops and the fish market is a good place to buy shrimp. Plenty of good places to eat. Parking is sometimes a challenge on the main street, but you can always park on a side street or on the next street over. If you... More

We never get tired of walking around, finding something we dont need, buying fish, having some beers or lunch. Its Mexico so of course the shop owners try to lure you in but its fun. Highly recommend you visit the Shop called Mercedes. Amazing glass ware and ceramics. No haggling so thats nice too. Just off the malecon and across... More
