My wife and I are regular visitors to Cholla Mall. They have something for everyone. Whether you want a t-shirt or high fashion clothing, interior design or furniture, crafts or metal works it's all there.

Most of the stores on "Cholla Mall" have the same items found in Old Port. However, there are a couple of stores with really nice handicrafts. Su Casa and Plaza Fabiola, right next to each other.

This is more upscale than the vendors in town. Great handcrafted items. Go all the way in to the stores or you will miss some beautiful finds.

Great fun to wander in and out of the shops. Keep your eye out for lovely Mexican handmade crafts and talavera pottery. Bargaining is expected... but don't be insulting. Offer a reasonable price and go from there. Settling on about 3/4 of the seller's original asking price is a good place to settle!

This place is quite amazing, lots to see of Mexican hand made articles, people named the "curios" do not know why... maybe because as you walk you become "curious" about what you see. Any way, talk to the people selling there, ask them where they come from and ask thm if they speak a different language or dialect, you will... More

In preparation for the planned cruise ship terminal (2017...?), this shopping mall has been built to handle the anticipated traffic. Most of the locally produced goods that you find in the Old Port section are here, but spread along a wide street with plenty of parking. Restaurants have not yet followed but probably will.
