Huge place with some excellent stores

Worth a visit for the choice of stores. Prices are quite similar to the usual American outlets, but wide variety makes it worth a visit.

They have Coffee, food, great shopping and best of all, a Coach outlet! My fav! Probably one of the best outlets I've been... More

A decent outlet center, but nothing special if you are from the U.S. This place mostly caters to middle and upper class Mexican citizens who shop here before they cross the border going home. You can expect your typical outlet bargains or not bargains but don't expect anything special. And don't expect anything Mexican, this is a place where Mexicans... More

This is the most popular Outlet Shop area, at least in SoCal as a lot of both locals, foreign tourists and Mexican residents cross the Border to shop stuff in this area. Most, if not all, boutiques of Big US Brands can be found here, from sunnies, shoes, any clothing both for men, women and children can be bought here.... More

Just about any kind of store you could possibly want. It was very easy to move around and find the store you wanted. It's nice that food stores are scattered throughout and not all blocked together. Would do this again and I don't like to shop

The shops here offer fantastic discounts and a wide range of designer shops. Beware of rainy days as the shops are not in an indoor building. You have to run from one shop to another if you plan on going on a rainy day. This mall is definitely worth a visit if you are looking for some great deals.

This outlet mall is right on the border of USA and Mexico so almost every store has staff working that can speak Spanish. The mall also has a lot of outlet stores for different brands like north face, Nike, Kenneth Cole to name a few.

Ok my daughter had to go there to return some item she got at another store. Pretty big mall but the food court sucks, not enough options. Overall a good place to shop if you need things
