Avenida Mar de Cortez, fondly nicknamed “Curio Street” is the street just behind the Malecon. Little shops line either side of the street, selling souvenirs, from Mexican blankets, swimsuits, race T-shirts, sundresses, sandals, kids toys, knicknacks and keychains, shot glasses and home decor items. Along this street, you’ll also find Bancomer, the Plazita shopping mall, and the latest large clothing store, “Sensacion.” Keep wandering further down and you’ll spy an OXXO, locals lounging outside at Fat Boy’s Pizza, Chumpos, the local breakfast nook and ice cream parlour, The Green House restaurant, and more! Of course, this is San Felipe, so you’ll never know what else you might see down there!
Focus may be on the Malecon with it’s lovely seafront and action, but Curio Street has its own charm as well – don’t miss it!
