Bought shoes, jackets, briefcase and more. Lots of options. Prices are great. It can be overwhelming as many booths carry the same items. Go with plenty of time to browse before you decide what to buy.

Zona Piel is packed with leather goods, shoes and handbags. Be sure to look around before buying and bargain for a good deal. We walked around and grabbed an adorable tote for 110 pesos before jumping on our bus to San Miguel de Allende.
