Shopping tips including currency, shipping and where to find what.

Souvenirs

Available everywhere, your best deals can be made on the beach in the late afternoon, at the local flea market, or in Pitillal. The closer to the malecon, the more you can expect the prices to rise.  Also, if you're interested in negotiating, the typical custom is to request a lower price for each individual item and then request a lower price for the purchase of multiple items. puerto vallarta souvenirs

 

Art

Art galleries are plentiful throughout Puerto Vallarta.  Wednesday night ArtWalk offer tourists the perfect opportunity to meet gallery owners and occasionally artists who frequently offer discounts on artwork these nights as well as arrange international shipping.  puerto vallarta art

 

Clothes

Puerto Vallarta's fashion district are the few streets back from the Malecon.  Clothing stores line these streets with prices ranging from inexpensive to high.  Consider visiting the fashion district in Pitillal, where the locals shop.  Extreme bargains for trendy nightclub clothes are easy to find here.  If you're lucky, you may even arrive during a street fashion show where a catwalk is constructed for a display of local designer fashions. puerto vallarta clothing

 

Jewelry  

While there are a number of upscale jewelry stores along the malecon, most tourists enjoy purchasing at least a few pieces of jewelry while visiting.  The best bargains can be found on the beach in the late evening before merchants are planning to head home for the evening...
