Beach House

A relative newcomer to the Playa scene, the Beach House serves up all the best surf brands under one roof, along with a few other brands, such as Tommy Bahama and the Original Penguin. As for the surf brands, you will find everything from Billabong to Quiksilver, Hurley to RVCA, O’Neill and more. Beach House also stocks some footwear, sunglasses and skateboards. Generally, it’s focused more on men’s clothing and accessories and the majority of the floor space is dedicated to men. They do have a smaller women’s section full of items from the same surf brands, but it is rather squashed in and requires some dedication to sort through. Still, if you want some surf apparel, this is definitely the place with the most options.

Shalom

Our favorite boutique clothing store in town, this Shalom outpost is one of three in the area (the other two are located just south in Tulum). Although the store is small, it’s well-stocked and offers a mix of really interesting clothing options that are hand picked by the owner from various sources around the world. Think leather-fringed tops, flowing dresses with interesting details, beautiful sheer tops, scarves and much more. The selection is always changing, so it’s a good idea to visit regularly. In addition to all the clothing options, the owner stocks a really interesting array of accessories, including leather jewelry and purses from a superstar leather maker in Mexico, beautiful bags and belts fashioned from antique textiles, unique shoes and a fun selection of Panama hats. Tip: Don’t forget to climb the somewhat hidden staircase to the treasures available on the 2nd floor!

La Troupe

The sister store to the original location, which is found on the beach road in Tulum, La Troupe is a great place to find some beautifully made treasures. Stocking items mostly in a neutral palette, La Troupe tends to be heavy on local handmade items, such as their very cute embroidered bags (with or without tassels), embroidered pillowcases, beautifully made leather belts, bracelets and other charming pieces of curated jewelry, along with a variety of other accessories and clothing. It’s definitely a place to check out if you enjoy shopping for items that are a bit different than the norm.

This shop has many outposts in Playa, including three that are located along 5th Avenue.

A few of the designs may go a bit crazy, but there’s quite a selection. They also stock some known brands of menswear, especially button down shirts (both short and long sleeve) along with some shorts and pant options.
