Every time we are in Cancun City (old Cancun) we go to Mercado 23 which is close to the central ADO bus station. There is a shop with wonderful cheeses and hams, restaurants, and many tourist souvenir shops with reasonable prices.

My Australian doctor cousin begged me to meet up with her in Cancun, so I did. It developed that what she wanted was a translator for her numerous shopping expeditions. She loved this mall. I didn't!
