“Main street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Just like any main street people walk and shop. The difference is that here there are lots of great restaurants, great shops and tedious vendors.

On the bright side, it is a colourful street that has pretty much anything you could need. Live performances, and so many great choices for restaurants.

If you wish to dance they have that too.

“Fifth Avenue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Lots of shops but very tourist driven. We went mid-day and it was very hot and humid. Made a couple of purchases and was able to deal for a good price.

“Great place for shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Do not buy at the first store, take your time to look what they offer and ask for discounts. Try the tequila, and enjoy the Mexican culture.

“Awesome!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Perfect for souvenirs and the price is right if you haggle. Too many people trying to sell you something. Be polite when declining and acknowledge people and keep walking. Works best.
