When guests have soaked up enough sun, they can mosey over to the new shopping complex at the Iberostar Playa Paraiso Resort in Mexico. Opened just this year, the shopping center offers a spacious plaza, with a gazebo and a border of eclectic gift shops and a variety of restaurants. The new area is conveniently situated across from the four hotels that make up the Iberostar Playa Paraiso Resort Iberostar Paraiso Maya, Iberostar Paraiso Lindo, Iberostar Paraiso del Mar and Iberostar Paraiso Beach.

The entrance is adorned with two large wooden horses that are complimented by a carousel that opens in the evenings. The shops sell local crafts and artwork, as well as beachwear, jewelry and clothing items.

After all that shopping, there is no shortage of places to relax and grab a bite to eat. All-inclusive restaurants in the shopping center include an American-style diner, a taco restaurant, a tapas bar and a crepe and ice cream shop. The complex also boasts Galaxy the adult-only disco and The Underground, an alcohol-free disco for the under-18 crowd. Late-night partiers can grab something to eat, as several of the all-inclusive restaurants are open until 2 a.m.

Clients looking to unwind, can visit the newly opened El Spa, a state-of-the-art, adults-only health and wellness center, also located in the shopping plaza. Just around the corner from the spa is an authentic Mexican wedding chapel. The shopping center also offers a fully stocked pharmacy.
