Bartering in Playa del Carmen?

I understand there is good shopping in Playa del Carmen and a smaller area in Playacar resort area. Is bartering allowed/expected or do you just pay the marked price?

I have not been there for a while;but, batering is a standard practice.It is important that you have agood knowledge of what your buying. My mistake was that I bartered for 50% of the price on a jade necklace and when I got home and asked my neighbor who is a diamond setter he indicated that I got a mall price at best.

Good Luck,
