Shopping Centre
“Clothing, jewelry, electronics, drinks, restaurants, bars, coffee shops. You'll find everything you need here. It's the best place to go shopping in the area. On Saturdays, I believe, they have a market (not to be confused with Mercado Andares which is there all week) where you'll find anything organic.”

Breakfast Spot
“Fredy's restaurant is the top rated breakfast restaurant on TripAdvisor for a reason, it consistently delivers excellent breakfast experiences. Traditional Mexican and American breakfasts are on offer and neither will let you down. There's not a ton that stands out about Fredy's to me personally but it's likely super close to where you are staying and you can count on it to time and time again to leave you happy and fueled for the day ahead.”
