Every destination has a typical tourist market like this. Most stalls has the same items and every stall holder will try to get you to come and look at there items. In saying this I did find some nice local items to take back home.

This was a bad tourist trap with really good marketing. There’s a flea market a few miles up the street which looks a bit better for the same stuff.

This place is great but get ready to be “harassed”. Great restaurants and amazing stores filled with local craftsmanship. Everyone will try to get you to come into “their” store to buy something. It gets a little overwhelming but it is an experience worth having....More

Terrible place. We wandered around the place for some time but eventually had to give up as the sellers were not only enthusiastic to sell (which I would totally understand) but they were simply just rude. Even though you say politely "no thank you" and...More

We stayed in the hotel district but decided we wanted to see more of the "real" town, so we took a bus in. Our hotel told us that Mercado 28 was the only reason anyone went to Cancun. When we got there it was a...More

Hi there You will have to park on the street. No parking lots or parkades available. Best to take a cab or the bus. Market 23 not far from 28 and definitely worth a see.
