Shopping in Cuernavaca - Shopping Cuernavaca - Mexico

Cuernavaca is not a shopping Mecca to compare with a place like nearby Taxco, but you can still find some neat stuff if you know where to look. There is a small artisan market next to the Cortes Palace where you can pick up souvenirs and gifts like Guerrero pottery, white cotton shirts, Che Guevara t-shirts, dresses and blouses and other tourist stuff. There is another, smaller market across the street and down the stairs from the fancy cafes on the central park: they sell mainly clothing there. If you don't go to the market, it will come to you in the form of street vendors found anywhere tourists congregate: they usually sell necklaces and other jewelry. Bargaining prices is the norm. 

In terms of other, non-souvenir shopping, there are a couple of modern malls outside of town. If you're up for an adventure, wander the maze of stalls in Plaza Lido, reputedly black-market clothing, DVD's, stereo equipment, etc. There are several bookstores: Cuernavaca is a great place to buy books, although selection in English is very limited.
