    HOAKEY SHOPS & MARKET!!! Do NOT waste your time. The city & tours say this is a "must see" and I would absolutely, positively disagree.

    Look around at all the shops. They all have the same items but not the same price! :)

    If you want to feel like you're in Mexico, go to El Mercado to shop and eat at Mi Tierra (and drink!) There's always a party going on, and it's a great place for photo ops for your profile.

    Bring cash, and get an El Pariso ice cream bar for a break from shopping.

    Search the blocks around the market square to look for the best parking. It ranges from $5-$20. Also a lot of the time (depending on the time of day) street parking is free.

    Take cash. Many of the little shops will offer a small discount, if you don't pay with a debit or credit card.

    Gives you the feeling of being in Mexico . Great place to spend a lazy day.

    Many stores sell the same items. Shoppers willing to do some extra walking should be able to spot the best price.

    Almost all of the shops sell exactly the same thing. I was disappointed; thought there would be more variety.

    Get crappy Mexican gifts that break easily from Mexico here! After buying crappy gifts you can eat good food at La Margarita or Mi Tierra! They make crappy toys, but make up in food!

    It's a big flea market with several vendors. They're really friendly, and you can attempt to barter prices. Some have really great things, some junk, but a great & colorful experience.

    I had the sliced fruit with lime squeezed over it and chili sauce added. YUMMY!!!

    None of the prices are set in stone, always try & lower the price & most of the time you will.

    Definitely enjoy breakfast at Mi Tierra early if you can. Just the decorations inside are worth the trip. Read more

    Be sure to buy an "Aguas fresca" from one of the vendors. I love watermelon flavor.
