Flea Market Shopping
Haggle your way through the colorful winding lanes of Mercado Coral Negro. Packed with wares from rugs to sombreros, hammocks, pottery, silver, and leather, the market is a bustling hub where you can pick up souvenirs and gifts to take home. Negotiating on price with the vendors is all part of the experience, so shop around to find a bargain and don't be swayed by combative haggling from the sellers. Watch for the open-air eatery, which offers inexpensive Mexican cuisine. Plan to see Mercado Coral Negro and other attractions that appeal to you using our Cancun travel itinerary planner.

  • Located on the main avenue of Cancun this mall offers souvenir options. As the handicraft of Mexico is not very nice, it may not please everyone.

  • Small flea market shopping area across the street from the Hard Rock Cafe. One of the many local souvenir markets in Cancun. The place is very clean and most shops are air conditioned. Many of the sho...  more »
  • Went to Coral Negro with my family to shop for souvenirs. Venders are pushy and items are way overpriced. You'd think items would be cheaper at a flea market than at the hotel gift shop or hotel vendo...  more »

  • One tourist shop after another. If you want souvenirs this is not a bad spot but a lot of repeat in each shop and be prepared to say no you don't want to look. At the same time some of the shopkeepers are very friendly and helpful. If you are looking to buy something specific ask and if the shop doesn't have it they will take you to another one that might. Update: if you plan to travel out of town to chichen itza or other spots you can probably get the same items for a much better price.
  • Huge selection of local goods but make sure your negotiation skills are up to par. Beware of the Cuban cigars as most are imposters...play it safe and buy them at the duty free shops in the airport.
  • We found good souvenirs here. But there are so many vendors here all trying to get you into their shops. The good thing is that you can talk them down in price. I really liked the store that sold the handcrafted leather goods. There is also a vendor that sells shot glasses with anything you want engraved on them. They have souvenir shops for things for $1 & also $5 T-shirts.
  • Big souvenir shop. Tons of stuff for good prices. Everything alphabetized for easy price understanding.
  • Great place to get souvenirs. U have to bargain though. The downside is the heavy duty calling u to come here and see my store, I ha e what u need etc. This dri es me nuts. Today I needed something specific for my mom and could glance in a shop and see if they had some jewelry xje requested Nonetheless, shop owners kept calling me. Finally was shown a small cart where a quiet lady allowed me to look in silence. She had the jewelry for my mom and for 2 others. Finally a slam dunk. Don't let it dissuade you. If u have to, ignore the calla. Take ur time going from shop to shop.
