I enjoy walking along the malecon and peaking into shops and buying fresh seafood that was caught that morning. Only complaint is too many stalls seem to see much of the same items.

Hot and crowded souvenir shopping which only appeals to kids or adults with cold beers. The fish market has lots of fresh fish, shrimp and clams, among other things. Bring a cooler and stock up! The prices are good and the goods are fresh.

Old port has a lot of shopping places, but a lot of the same stuff in different stores. The people are rather pushy when haggling & trying to get you to purchase from their store. Rather expensive. But nice to walk through if you don't...More

Best answer would be on the Google Map. There is no shuttle, that I know of, to town (Puerto Penasco). When I was there in November, I went to town in a taxi (twice) for shopping. You go out & back in the same taxi for a... More
