Stores in Mexico offer many tempting items to purchase. Fifth Avenue is a street created just for tourists and other pedestrians, and you will be welcomed by the “living statues."
Not only does it have chic hotels, but it is also a great shopping street. La Quinta, as the locals call it, has everything, from street craft sellers to fine cigar stores and the exclusive jewelry stores of well-known designers and Mexican artists.
Some things to look out for on Fifth Avenue are the interesting art galleries exhibiting works for sale, the boutiques of famous international and local designers, and Mexican craft shops. Also, the liquor stores selling everything from typical Mexican drinks like tequila to domestic wines and of course xtabentún – a local liqueur made from anise and honey from the bees that feed on the xtabentún flower.
You can also take a stroll and listen to bands playing Mexican music, or pre-Hispanic music, DJs, and jazz bands – all inviting you to rest your feet and relax on the terrace of a bar with a cocktail before you continue shopping.
