Mazatlán has many fine shops, a modern shopping mall (another is under construction) and an unending number of open air stores. Many of the local shops feature the crafts that are so famous all over Mexico. Unique art can be found, custom made leather clothing, there are also some great buys in sporting and resort wear.
One of the more unique stores is a “Sea Shell Supermarket” featuring many truly unique shells and items form the sea. You may have to look a little harder to find that great shop, with the perfect item, in Mazatlán. That is what makes shopping such an adventure.
The central market located in the middle of downtown (where else?) is one square block of everything you can imagine, and then some. If you have the time and are in the area, at least take a quick walk through, you will be surprised and the diversity of merchandise.
Offering the unsuspecting consumer everything from hanging meat to huarache sandals, this is a true “Mercado Central” in the old Mexican tradition.
