  • My husband and I wanted to try both the local and tourist market. Market 23 is definitely for locals. They had raw meat hanging from hooks that you could buy by the weight. Whole Pigs and chickens. It...  more »
  • Went to the Mercado 28 there was like coming to Mercado 23 local people what to eat and souvenirs to target tourists in central location. Food and dining Mexico you can eat cheaply. It is a problem because only Spain language is the main language does not lead. Ate here sells clothes and household items such as well so if you're a little walk to see souvenir here is a recommended place.

  • You won't find English speakers here and they don't want American dollars. But there are some deals to be had. The neighborhood is more of a typical Mexico style, run down, dirty. But it seemed safe. ...  more »

  • Fantastic places to eat and an awesome experience here. Worth stopping into if you're staying nearby.
  • This is the place to go. Local owned by the locals. Better bidding.
  • This is a great market with great little restaurants and lots of shops filled with merchandise and spices and lots of fresh produce sold by many different vendors so if one produce section doesn't have something they will let you know someone that does. They have a great little place across from the restaurants that sells the best chorizo and Mexican cheeses. This is a locals neighborhood market and is located downtown out of the touristy hotel zone. People are less urgent to bother you to buy something than market 28. My husband and I bought things here to make for dinner in the condo we were staying at.
  • Tired of that huge souvenir store called market 28? Want to see a real, old-fashioned Marketplace? This one is hardly the spectacle of a marketplace in an old Mexican city, but it is the closest thing to the real deal in Cancun. Furthermore, what better souvenirs than shirts and dresses that the locals actually use, or even something as wild as a voodoo doll, rather than a stupid T-shirt?
  • As of today, this place is not closed. This is not a tourist place, locals shop here, grab freshly made tortillas, carnes, home goods and do a little shopping like talavera goods, playeras etc. I dont know why Google says its closed, it is not.

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.
