Acapulco Shopping

El Mercado de Artesanías El Parazal

  • Outdoor/Flea/Green Markets

Fodor's Review

It's a 15-minute walk from Sanborns downtown to this market. Look for fake ceremonial masks, the ever-present onyx chessboards, $20 hand-embroidered dresses, imitation silver, hammocks, and skin cream made from turtles (don't buy it, because turtle harvesting is illegal in both Mexico and the United States, and you won't get it through U.S. Customs). From Sanborns downtown, head away from Avenida Costera to Vásquez de León and turn right one block later. The market is

open daily 9–9.
