Shopping

From typical shopping mall experiences to wandering through open markets or bazaars that have existed for centuries, you will find a diverse selection of goods in Mexico. It is actually at the bazaars where most of the better handmade arts and crafts items can be purchased. Some of the best buys include silver, pottery, handicrafts, and woven fabrics. Also at the markets, look for pure vanilla extract (which is native to Mexico), spices and Mexican chocolate – the latter of which is used for making a variety of hot and cold drinks (Atole, Tejate) as well as mole, a traditional sauce used to accompany chicken. Bargaining or haggling is a common practice at the markets, but is optional. And, of course, tequila is a very popular item.

Useful information

The water is not safe in Mexico. Drink bottled water!
