There are several large shopping malls and plazas in Los Cabos, most notably Puerto Paraíso and Luxury Avenue on the Cabo San Lucas Marina, Plaza Sendero in the Delegation area of Cabo San Lucas, Plaza San Lucas in the Tourist Corridor, and the Mega mall complex in downtown San José del Cabo. Soriana, the primary store at Plaza Sendero, and Mega in San José (there is now a second location in San Lucas) are both chain-style grocery and sundry stores, and therefore of much more interest to locals than tourists.
For short-term visitors to Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Paraíso and Luxury Avenue are by far the most popular malls for souvenir hunting and shopping for resort necessities such as swimwear, sunglasses and warm weather apparel. Puerto Paraíso and Luxury Avenue are located next to each other on the marina boardwalk, with the latter catering to higher end clientele interested in luxury brands like Fendi and Cartier. Plaza Bonita, nearby, also features clothing boutiques and arts and crafts galleries, but is perhaps best known for housing the city's only Starbuck's and Burger King franchises.
Plaza San Lucas is located in the Tourist Corridor that connects cape cities Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, and is popular with both locals and visitors, primarily due to the diversity of offerings at Walmart. In San José, Plaza Artesanos is a mandatory stop for souvenir hunters, with over 75 vendors selling authentic Mexican arts and crafts.
