Acapulco shopping can suit any pocket book and taste. The shopping venues range from large shopping centers, to small boutiques, to department stores, to street vendors. The art, jewelry, crafts and leather are among some of the best buys.

Fronting the main harbor is Old Acapulco, the traditional Mexican heart of the city. The downtown area has the excitement of a tropical harbor and a bustling seaside promenade.Narrow lively streets lead off the pretty shady Zócalo, or main square, and uphill to the Fuerte de San Diego. Facing the Zócalo is the Cathedral, the Nuestra Senora de la Soledad Church. There are many sites to see and markets for shopping throughout Acapulco. If you like shopping you will enjoy walking through the town and beaches of Acapluco Mexico.

Vender's and local merchants are everywhere. They have their own shops and are also walking around on the streets and beaches ready to make a shopping deal with whoever desires it.

Acapluco shopping is home to the best silver and gold jewelry, clothing and handicrafts shops are located at or near the better hotels. The two-story Plaza Bahia, located next to the Costa Club on Costera Miguel Aleman, Acapulco's main boulevard and shopping strip, is one of the resort's two leading shopping malls.

Acapulco's largest shopping center and other leading mall, Gran Plaza, dominates the Costera with its hulking bright blue exterior. Salinas y Rocha, a Mexican department store chain, has a branch there, as does American Express, Foot Locker and Radio Shack. Several art galleries feature works by this country's best painters and sculptors. Remember art brought back to the United States is duty free. In an effort to clear Acapulco's beaches of vendors, the local Acapulco government has set up several shopping markets. One is located right by the Diana monument at the entrance to the highway from Mexico City.
