There is a lot to look at in the bazaar, from kitchen equipment to clothes to children's toys to sacred artifacts, so go slowly. But after a while one can get dizzy from the mass of colors, all very Mexican indeed. But don't let that put you off from visiting because you can take a rest from the too colorful... More

I would go back to this place on the edge of Old Town again and again to visit the little shops with Mexican and international crafts and gifts. This is the place to go to get authentic and unique finds. Service in the shops was friendly and there was tons to see. Kids and adults alike will love it!

I stumbled upon this location years ago and while I don't get to San Diego often, when I do, I make sure to swing by! The textiles and handicrafts are just stunning and the colors and variety of their merchandise makes it a treat. I highly recommend it!

I love Bazaar del Mundo! There is so much to do here, it's full of Mexican culture, a beautiful area with authentic Mexican food, tons of restaurants, you may see Mexican dancers and Mariachis serenading. Lots of souveniers and gifts. Very colorful, festive and friendly. A lovely place to spend a whole day (or two).

The shops at Bazaar Del Mundo are interesting to visit. We have always found something we like. The 2-story gift shop has many lovely Mexican items-including linens and dishes. Upstairs are many hand made folk art items made in Mexico. Behind this shop is a large store with more Mexican home interior design objects-large and small. Perhaps we enjoy shopping... More

Even Mexico, about 17 miles south doesn't have "authentic" Mexican souvenirs and offerings. Much of their stuff is made in China. But many San Diegans know the history of Bazaar Del Mundo and Diane Power's (the owner) generosity to her community. Bazaar Del Mundo used to be in their past location and in their present location a place of color... More

The old town layout is interesting enough. At a glance it looked pretty cool. But ... once we got into the shops ... I was disappointed. I was expecting something with more of a Spanish theme to it, all it was was Mexican. You can get that anywhere. The free Museum we went through looked good, maybe somewhat under maintained....
