Everyone finds Puerto Vallarta shopping fun because it’s so varied, not only in what you can buy, but in where you can find it. Distinctive art forms from all over Mexico await discovery in both ultra-modern and very traditional stores and galleries tucked intriguingly throughout Puerto Vallarta. The Municipal Flea Market with its bevy of colorful stalls is a tourist must, as is the downtown Malecon and the streets surrounding it, eye-poppingly rich with galleries, jewelry stores and designer shops specializing in casual wear. We’ve got several Puerto Vallarta shopping centers, department stores and supermarkets, as well as a traditional outdoor food market. And pharmacies —some open round the clock— sell many drugs over the counter that would require prescriptions up north. Many shops mentioned here can be easily located by visiting our comprehensive Maps section.

Of course, sooner or later, you will want to put your shopping bags down and pursue other activities. Make sure to check our main What to Do page for a broad variety of options broken down into preference lists!
