This little Mexican market place is not worth the time to visit. Everything was junky--nearly all the vendors had the same items. Spend the time somewhere else

Had the same kinds of stuff in all shops. Nothing unique and no good T-shirts. Mostly Mexico stuff which I have been, If you like or want that kind of stuff then you'll love it! I did get a great fan!

So many restaurants and very good shopping opportunities. We enjoyed a good dinner and then had a nice time wandering around through the area.

I walked there with a foreign visitor and it was daylight. There were many homeless people along the route and I did not feel overly unsafe but I did not feel super safe either as we walked to and from. I would not walk... More
