  • The place doesn't have everything, but here are the CocoBongo, Hard Rock Café, shops for souvenirs, shop and even a Harley Davidson store. Here you can also buy tours in Cancun, as there are numerous shops as well. Recommend the beach behind the Forum By The Sea, which is best visited in Cancun.

  • If you're looking for the best deals for souvenirs, go to the store located on the left corner on the second floor. I wished I would've stumbled upon this store first because I spent most of my money ...  more »
  • Shopping for tourists, with various brands of international restaurants and shops (Hard rock, coco bongo, charlies, harley davidson). Prices are not so friendly. Oddly enough there is a CI bank kiosk with great exchange rates. Main point of the night in cancun, for being close to the main night clubs and restaurants in town, though it made to the American style.

  • Nice complex with a variety of food options. If you visit Cancun, you should definitely take a stroll through this area. During the evening, the complex is the center of the night life. The reason for my low rating is because the complex is very generic with many of the stores being international establishments that I can visit in Canada or America. During the evening, the place is full of drunks and locals attempting to sell the numerous vices available in Mexico.
  • Basically this is ground zero for the Cancun party scene. If you're drinking on the beach,this is were the restrooms are at. Watch out for Carlos and Charles. Whatever you do don't give up your credit card. These guys think they're so smooth but all the while they're trying to hustle you They were taking down the giant guitar last time I was there
  • Much improved over the past 2 years. Decent combination of restaurants, souvenir shops, and places to book activities (note: we always book on line for discounts and to check reviews). There are a number of night clubs in this area so some may want to avoid it after dark if you have small kids.
  • Nice place to buy souveniers, but alot of them sell the same thing. When we went they were building a food court above Hard Rock Cafe. Just check the tee shirt prices between stores- make sure you aren't getting price gouged
  • Very nice beach but as always too many people trying to sell you stuff that you don't need and the drinks are 2× more expensive.
