    Be prepared to haggle for a good deal. Never settle until you are happy with a price, and if they won't settle, go to the next store, they'll have the same thing. Many hand made gifts and souvenirs, a...  more »

    Going in, I knew they would be agressive and pushy, but not like this. It was a rainy day, so not very many people had been there. However, there are some wonderful, informative vendors in there. We o...  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.

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.
