Great center and shopping mall. Where to look and find it necessary :cinema, restorants, stores and enterteinment.
This shop provides a good selection of unusual and local music on CDs, and in a few cases, cassettes. It is a great place to shop and be able to take home some of the musical vibrations experienced here in Puerto Vallarta. Also, check out the book selection, which includes many titles specifically related to Mexican culture and music. At night, the adjacent nightclub draws in music lovers from all over the world for a different kind of groove.
The cigar craze may have come and gone elsewhere, but here it is business as usual, tending to the needs of cigar smokers with fine quality offerings. U.S. citizens will enjoy the chance to smoke genuine Cuban cigars here; just don't try to take them with you back across the U.S. border. Take the similar ones from the Dominican Republic home instead. In the rear, there is a comfortable, quiet bar area for drinking, smoking, and comparing the merits of the rolled tobacco leaves.
Creations by the Huichol culture, are something out of this world! From abstract paintings to colorful masks, the tradition and ingenuity of these people transcends time and space.

Artesanias Watakame, features a full range of Huichol original creations.

Travelers will appreciate the importance of having a good book to read while on a journey, be it for business or leisure.

Puerto Vallarta has no shortage of upscale shops, but for many the real fun of shopping begins at this sprawling, two-story flea market. Vendors offer just about anything, and bargaining is all part of the game. Most of the time, expect to pay about 20 percent less than the initially stated price, but this varies. Outside of high season, or if the stall keeper is tired of looking at a piece, even deeper discounts are possible. Look for leather goods, Mexican silver, pottery and woven items. Credit card acceptance varies by vendor.
