With the area's recent popularity and influx of foreign visitors from around the world, Cabo San Lucas shopping offers a wide range of boutiques, gift shops, and galleries. Imported American goods are more commonly available in Cabo San Lucas shops than in other Mexican resorts, particularly at the supermarkets where the shelves are stocked with familiar American products.
Cabo San Lucas shopping features several markets. Jewelry shops, open-air bazaars, designer boutiques, and souvenir shops anchor the marina's east side, and the sprawling Costa Real Cabo Resort's mall dominate the town's waterfront. The focus of Cabo's shopping and restaurant scene is gradually closign in on Puerto Paraiso Entertainment Plaza, the large mall at the entrance to downtown.
The Artisans' Market at the marina's fishing boat dock features dozens of stalls selling handicrafts and clothing. Mall shopping can be found at Plaza Bonita at the eastern edge of the Marina, as well as Plaza del Mar and Plaza de la Danza. Whether your purchases include something fun, practical, or extravagant, the experience will be inspiring and you will want to go back for more!
The most representative Cabo San Lucas shops are:
Although downtown offers more authentic Mexican gifts, the Puerto Paraiso Entertainment Plaza caters to shoppers with more expensive and sophisticated tastes. This mall is the most ambitious commercial shopping project ever constructed in the southern Baja California peninsula. The refined Puerto Paraiso combines indoor shopping and entertainment with cascading waterfalls, restaurants, and open areas for strolling and relaxing. As you wander the mall, many stores may appear similar in style and merchandising, but upon walking through, it becomes more evident that each store and vendor has a variety of novel gifts.
Located in Plaza del Sol, this boutique offers the latest in fun beachwear. With more focus on trends, this store grabs the attention of many teens and young adults. Lining the store from front to back are racks filled with every style of bathing suit available as well as sarongs, t-shirts, and cute, surfer shorts for men and women.
Located next to El Squid Roe, Plaza del Mar has an interesting mix of stores that offer a variety of t-shirts, tank tops, bags, hats, accessories, and more. Inside Plaza del Mar, you'll find Cabo Hats, El Agave Bar, Cabo San Lucas Surf Shop, and Wide Open Baja, among other interesting stores.
