A nicely done (if fanciful) take on a Mexican market, this 2 level collection of boutiques features a courtyard, fountain and public art - get your picture taken with the metal Mariachis. The upscale stores sell clothing, jewellery and decorative items. A pleasant way to spend an hour (and your money).

Colorful shops reflect authentic and historic items available "South of the Border." You'll spend time browsing through the tiled rooms oozing with charm and inviting gifts. Everything from books, garments, decor, art, crafts, and more can be purchased, but it is not a souvenir place.

Shops here have a great selection of things from Mexico and very reasonable prices. Pottery, cook books, fabric, clothes, tiles...whatever you are looking for, you are sure to find.

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
