When you come to Acapulco you can appreciate how easy it is to find folk art quality products and gifts and fond memories. This section tells you where to go to Acapulco you can remember and folk art shopping. A related article provides general information and advice and third discusses Mexican silver.

The passenger cruise ships. If you arrive by cruise ship, your time will be limited and you'll probably want to stay in the city where the ship docked. (If you have all day, however, do not be afraid to catch a taxi and explore the bay!) The few shops in the terminal are good choices. They are reliable, and although their prices are not the lowest in town, they are safe and practices. The clerks speak French and English and in Spanish, and the selection is always very good. If you walk in Fort near San Diego, that the gift shop also has books, prints and some authentic crafts. Around the central square, the ZA ³ calo, a few blocks away, you can find many other stores, too, so they tend more to the memories of folk art and crafts. Approximately 10 one minutes walk beyond ³ calo ZÃ you will find the Mercado de Artesanías Parazal (also called œTepitoâ € €), where you will find a vast collection booths and tables of all kinds, selling almost everything imaginable. You'll be in Acapulco € ™ s oldest shopping district, and you will pass many other businesses on your way to and from. On the way back, you can find a couple more shops of folk art in both blocks immediately east of the ZÃ ³ calo, on the Costera Alema ¡n.

Vacationers Acapulco. If you want to be in town for some time, you should prepare to hit some different places, mostly up and down the Costera Alema ¡n. Technically, an outdoor souvenir market is a â € œ Mercado de Artesanías, â € but the locals call a â € œ Tianguis. â € Some more art than Junk, junk other than art, and all have much to eat as well. In addition to Parazal ArtesanÃas Mercado de, mentioned above, there are smaller versions on Caletilla Beach (down the west end of the Costera), facing Tamarindos Beach (known as Noa Noa, near Horn), opposite the Parque Papagayo, and across from the Crowne Plaza in œGolden € â € Zone.â In Round-Diana, Diana Mercado de ArtesanÃas covers a large area, and offers a rich selection of folk art, including blouses and skirts. Scattered along the Costera from one end to another are small areas where street vendors have spread their wares. They are not as permanent (or semi-permanent) as tiaguis, but they also have good choice and value. Aboriginal suppliers are usually women, almost always dressed in color, size shirt dresses with puffed sleeves and ruffled skirts, accordion, covered with an apron apron in a contrasting color and pattern. For the most part, Spanish is their second language, and a good proportion of them may he speaks at least as good as you. The gestures work fine.

For gifts and decorative items in a range of high quality, several stores have become very popular with tourists. Costa Azul, around the side of the bay, you will find the â € œCasa of € culturae (about half a block after CiCi Water Park on the same side Street). Here, the city government operates a cultural center that also supports sales by local artists in their own works. Ceramics, pottery, jewelry, painted objects, all kinds of artisan work is for sale here, and prices are generally very reasonable. Sometimes, artisans will set up a demonstration for passersby to show how they create their art. ArtesanÃas Finas de Acapulco (known locally as Afa-ACA) is a large store with a large inventory of works in all of Mexico. You can even buy a full mariachi costume if you wish. Furniture, paintings, sculptures, jewelry and embroidered clothing hand and tablecloths are available here. Many consider this to be the top seller of its kind in Acapulco and perhaps in all of Mexico. It is located at the corner of Horatio Nelson and the Costera Costa Azul or the city center near the corner of the Costera with Juan Escudero (two blocks east of the ZÃ ³ calo). In the Bay Plaza Center you will find Alebrijes & Caracoles, which has an inventory of items of fun for children as well as decorative objects for the home and garden.

For the adventurous there are a few â € € œseriousâ markets in town, where the leaders go early in the morning buy their restaurants, where the locals go to buy everything for their home. Prices are better than in supermarkets and shops amateur, but conditions are a little more primitive sound. Central Market (at Cine Rio) and the Mercado del Campesino (in Progreso) are the two best examples. Some forms of folk art and souvenirs can be found here, but your main motivation to go would be to have a look at how the non-tourist town really works.
