  • Small gallery (I don't think it's a mall) where is located the Hard Rock and the Coco Bongo. There is no store that are worth visiting. The highlight was the ice cream from Häagen-Dazs right at the entrance, where you can sit and watch the movement taking a good ice cream.

  • Forum by the Sea is multi level shopping center in middle of hotel zone. If you are looking for souvenirs then might be worth quick visit. Not lot of shops here, but it is pretty big mall with three f...  more »
  • Located in Cancun's hotel zone up North, disco and Club hotels. It is a building that contains the famous Coco Bongo. Such as souvenir shops and restaurants, room 1-will move to the third floor.

  • 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.
