Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo Shopping

Mercado de Artesanía Turístico

  • Outdoor/Flea/Green Markets

Fodor's Review

Shopping in Ixtapa lacks traditional Mexican energy. Most stores are relegated to strip malls across from the hotels on Paseo del Palmar. There are boutiques, restaurants, pharmacies, self-service laundries, and grocery stores, but everything seems to blend together. A ban on street and beach vendors restricts small merchants to a large handicrafts zone, Mercado de Artesanía Turístico, on the right side of Boulevard Ixtapa across from the Hotel Barceló. It's open from 10 to 10 and has some 150 stands, selling handicrafts, T-shirts, and souvenirs.
