We were looking for something a little more locally authentic and took a 30 minute taxi ride to Mercade 28. Honestly it was disappointing. Beware that each shop owner actively solicits you to enter their store, some of them quite aggressively, it can be intimidating. At first I was a little afraid by this in-your-face approach, but as I realized... 更多
Very nice market, especially that a lot of souvenirs are in the one place. The prices are usually kind of high, but you can find easly cheaper offers in the labirint of shops, also you can bargain to make the price cheaper - often they are immidiately making discounts. I bought beautiful backpack and a dress with patterns from Chiapas.... 更多
We were looking to experience some of the local culture outside of the hotel zone so decided this would be the best place for it. I was wrong. The whole experience was unpleasant, the vendors are beyond persistent and can be very unpleasant. When you haggle the prices drop significantly, for example a blanket originally at 700 pesos I got... 更多
The prices at this market are 30-50% less what they are in the Hotel Zone, if you are prepared to haggle. I was looking for a couple masks and found some very nice ones for about 450 Pesos. Great selection of stuff. Might be a bit overwhelming for someone not used to haggling and having shopkeepers pestering you.
Great little place but give me a minute to shop. The shop people are hounding you every second of your shopping experience. From the beginning there are people following you around, it could have been so much better if they'd given me a moment of peace to just SHOP. I spent my $$$ elsewhere!
It's in a very urban area and somewhat difficult to get to (since pedestrian signals do not exist) but worth a trip if you want cheap souvenirs. Don't let your urban city fears get the best of you (my wife said the area was a little sketchy), it was safe. Just be aware. Same stuff you can get in the... 更多
The farther you walk into the market the cheaper the prices get. For example, the embroidered dresses that you see in the first market after the bus drop will be close to $60. As you walk farther down the street they become $15. Be ready to haggle, and say no thank you a lot. These people are like birds on... 更多
This is more of a centralized location for a variety of souvenirs and local local handicrafts. There are probably more than 200 small shops. Items range from silver and gemstones to the usual souvenirs coming from the border towns or tourist spots. Prices are far cheaper than the hotel zone prices. There is a difference between Plaza 28 and Mercado... 更多
