This shop is called Sea Shell City Museum, and it's no wonder why. The two-story building, located near the beach in Zona Dorada, houses thousands of sea shells of all different shapes, sizes and colors, and wandering through this store is very much like wandering through a museum collection. The family business sells all kinds of shells, including decorative crafts made from the material.
Conveniently located a few blocks inland from the main tourist beach in Zona Dorada, La Gran Plaza is Mazatlan's largest shopping mall and has items for the whole family. Here you'll find department stores, shoe stores, jewelry shops, boutiques, a super market, movie theater, food court and more. The mall is also the site of several local events.
Located at the end of the shopping center across the street from Balboa Tower Resort in Zona Dorada, Gallery Michael sells everything from Mexican art and furniture to jewelry made from silver, gold and precious gems. Local owner Miguel Marrujo specializes in Mexican crafts and offers several one-of-a-kind selections in his store. His friendly staff is always quick to answer any questions or help you find the perfect accent piece for your home. Check online for discount certificates.
One of Latin America's best sightseeing activities is the local market, and Mazatlan's is Mercado Centro, a daily indoor/outdoor market located at Benito Juarez and Melchor Campo. Navigate through the fresh produce, meat and fish with the locals. Inexpensive clothing, jewelery, arts and crafts can all be found here too, which means the market is the perfect place to find that authentic souvenir. And of course, shopping here is a cultural experience in of itself. Negotiate or buy in bulk for the best deals.
At Casa Etnika, there is no shortage of handmade goods from all over Mexico. Gems found at this shop include handwoven purses, jewelry, pottery, art and more. There are also items from other parts of the world, including Africa and India in this "Ethnic House." The friendly staff here are more than happy to help visitors sort through the arts and crafts to find the perfect souvenir to take home. Call ahead for business hours.
