shopping?

Can anyone tell me what the non souvenier type of shopping is like in Playa? WE are travelling with two families, both of us having teenage girls. They are saving their money in hopes of buying something fun..like a new swimsuit (okay so its a useful souvinier). We are there for 2 weeks and hope to go up to Cancun if we can find a cheap way to get there.. but wondered if there were any good swimwear shops locally in Playa.

TIA

There are many different Swimwear shops to choose from on 5th Ave. There are other cool clothing stores they might be interested in. Check out Bershka and Crush.

Though there is not a Sears, and I can't remember anyplace selling power tools or car batteries, just about anything else you could find at your local mall can be had on 5th Ave. There are many clothing shops, some of them very trendy ... the girls will love them.

Cancun? Did you say you wanted to go to Cancun? I thought people only went to Cancun to get on/off the plane.

Yes I agree! I do only want to whip past Cancun on my way to paradise, although having two terribly trendy teenagers along for the ride, i was hoping for a quick trip just to say, been there done that don't have to do it again!

Thanks for the tips everyone!

It's easy and cheap to get to Cancun. Just catch a bus from the bus station in Playa to the station in Cancun. Then take the local bus or a taxi to the shopping malls.
