  • This small open air market has fresh produce, meat, fish, and more. It has several restaurants with outdoor seating. Its a great place to grab lunch and watch people go about their daily lives.
  • This is where the locals go. If you want a true feel of the raw products that are used on a Mexican family table. This is it. Authentic as it gets. We took a private tour with a local chef
  • I love the fresh food market with veggies and beef, chicken and pork. they also have a leather working shop that I have used several times. There is also a tailor that looks to do shirts and the like. There are several small places to eat the local foods and 3 hair shops and and couple of places that sell tropical plants and one of them sells herbs that are growing in pots plus 2 or 3 places to get a good selection of flowers... I love this market!
  • This is a market that is more for Mexicans shopping for household necessities than for tourists but there is are good amount of shops selling souvenirs and the great thing about Merado 23 is the vendors are very relaxed, making it a good atmosphere to negotiate a deal on those goodies you want to take back home.
  • We loathe agressive, touristy places. Mercado 23 is not that and we were glad to shop here. Tons of fresh fruit and vegetables, Christmas merchandise. Good food. 30 peso haircuts. If you require spotless shopping areas, overpriced merch and English speakers, skip this place, it's not for you.

Where to stay in Cancun

Cancun's accommodations cater to everyone from spring-break partygoers to distinguished luxury seekers. By far the most densely developed area for hotels is the boomerang-shaped Punta Nizuc-Cancun and the connecting Bulevar Kukulcan, projecting out into the sea and offering prime beach access. Among the stylish resorts, you can find expansive party hostels offering large swimming pools. If you'd like a more independent Cancun vacation, consider staying at one of the private rentals scattered along the coast.
