The shopping malls here are few and are very small compared to our North American standards. We do have a few areas you can go for shopping.
Centro Maya is located on the main highway as you are driving south out of Playa del Carmen. This mall includes the City Club, Soriana (grocery store), a movie theater, there are go-karts located in the parking lot.
