“Not really a mall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2011

This is more of a street of shops. About 1/3 are closed down. Owners are nice and helpful. Prices are more fixed than downtown, but more reasonable too. Some great sculpture shops. More limited selections than downtown. Not too much to do here so why not stop by.

“Visit JJ's on your way to the mall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2010

While on your way to the mall you must stop in at JJ's for a bite to eat. The view is fabulous and the hamburgers are great as well.

“Don't miss this shopping stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2010

This is far better shopping than along the bay. Less hassle with the same goods for sale. Easy parking with various (30+ shops). Everyone seems to speak English.

“Good place to shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2008

I have visited the Cholla Mall many times in the last 15 years. It has greatly improved during this time, and now has a paved street running through it. It is much cleaner than 15 years ago, and there is a wide selection of merchadise. I enjoy shopping there more than down by the port. It is a great place to buy gifts from Puerto Penasco. One thing I do not like in Cholla or down by the port is the filthy language and messages on t-shirts. I like to take my young neices and nephews shopping, but it is getting worse each year. I do not support the stores that carry these items.

“neat place to poke around”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2006

February 2005 we were there. I liked it! Some people call it The Rodeo Drive of Mexico, with tongue planted firmly in cheek! It is quite a charming place, though. The shopkeepers are friendly, the selection is good, language is not a problem and I think the prices were a bit better than on the Malecon. Housewares, clothing, interesting garden ornaments, etc. The place really hums when the tour busses pull in!
