Paseo Del Carmen-Shopping at the Begining of 5th Avenue

Pase del Carmen

Paseo Del Carmen Shopping Plaza

Paseo Del Carmen is an outdoor shopping mall right at the beginning of 5th Avenue. The shopping plaza is between 5th Avenue and 10th Avenue. It has been a part of Playa Del Carmen for a while but it is changing with time to keep updating itself. It was originally built in 2003 but still looks fresh and offers Mediterranean feeling shopping center with cobble stone paths.

This shopping area has nice shaded paths with some green space which is nice to sit at one of the cafes and enjoy the tropical plants while you rest from walking around. If you are on your way to or from Cozumel you will pass right by this shopping plaza. Also a lot of tours going to the Cozumel Ferry Pier are dropped off on 10th Avenue and you walk through the plaza.

Stores at Paseo Del Carmen

Two stores we recommend for clothes shopping are Pull and Bear and Bershka. We recommend these because you might not have them where you are from so they have different stuff. They also have reasonably priced shirts, pants, shorts, shoes and casual clothes. These stores can also be good if you live in  Playa Del Carmen for shopping for outfits.

There are some high end stores here as well if you are looking for that. To name a few there is Lacoste, Tommy Hilfiger, Zara, and Armani Exchange.

One store that has stood the test of time is Kin Mayab. It sells traditional yet modern Mayan clothes. they are like white linen and very good for the climate in Playa Del Carmen.

There is one new home d├ęcor store called Zara Home that is open in the mall. If you like white or silver then this is your place. They have small items and a lot of bed linens.

Shops for souvenirs

For tourist souvenirs there are two big stores. Much like our recommended store on 5th Avenue called Hacienda Tequila, these two stores sell all the basic Mexican souvenirs although these two don’t have a cold air-conditioning or the huge  selection of Tequilas as Hacienda Tequila.

One store is called Casa Tequila Playa Mart and the other is called Plaza La Fiesta Mexican Bazaar. We prefer Plaza La Fiesta more since it is bigger and seems to have better quality merchandise. So if you are short on time, go there first.

Note: If you are doing a lot of shopping especially at qualified stores in Mexico you can get a tax refund by following this guide here.
