Nice, clean shopping center. Staff was not pushy and willing to talk, not just sell. Same merchandise as all other shops in area. Close walking distance from resorts. Great local craft beer selection at outdoor bar.

This location is great for shopping without having to wrestle with the cruise hoards, and elbow-to-elbow crowds on 5th Avenue. It is also located in the gated, secure community of Playacar so you can feel safe there.

Great location that gets better each time I visit. I'm sure that you can find better prices elsewhere but it's really handy if staying in PDC.

Stopped in at the Starbuck's at Plaza Playacar and met a very nice Canadian Couple. Shopping is fun there as well! Have a beer and browse the wares. You'll have a great break from the resort.
