Just another mall. The food court was pretty good and it has all the standard stores so if you want to do some shopping, it's definitely the place to go. But the area around the mall did not seem very safe.

Maybe one of the largest malls in the center of the city. Many good stores that are low to high range on prices. The mall also has a large movie theater.

Ride the subway to get there, lots of attractions on the way.... definitely worth checking out. Lots of specialized stores and stuff for the kids to do. (Kids museum of some kind) Very stylish as well.

I honestly didn't feel safe when I was strolling down the halls of the Abasto. There were a lot of shady characters around and I just feel like the mall could use of more security guards. On a positive note, the ferris wheel inside was pretty cool!

Standard shopping mall inside a nice old central market building. There is nothing special except if you go during those hot summer days: the AC cannot cool enough and the place becomes intolerably hot. Otherwise it's a nice place.
