  • Grubby, hard sell, bartering, sales pressure, all the shops sell the same stuff, intimidating, unpleasant, and a rip off. Don't waste your time here.  more »
  • As we had little time before going to the airport and I got some "souvenirs" we choose to go to market black coral. The sellers make you crazy, they are very inconvenient, not dao time to look a product are already throwing you the prices, and "supposed" discounts, so-called because definitely there products are expensive, and the ' exorbitant and if she's not paying in Mexican pesos until the parks are better cost benefits, and if you have time look in playa del carmen , tulum and even the airport had excellent shops of best quality options, when the times of equal quality and best price! I got in one of the shops and was looking at the options of glass of tequila, the owner (without me to ask any price) told me that by owning the store could make me the best discounts (I have collection of cups and not found anything very interesting) I said I would think, I continued my buca in the store for other memories anyway still had to buy some, when I saw a necklace which I thought was nice and asked the price, I received the following reply: but it will be to buy or to think? My mother in a store next door, like a few refrigerator magnets, the time was paying I went to another store and she didn't have the value changed in Mexican pesos (but had money in dollars), explained to Sir q separate the imas and she would call me next door to pay, even began to speak aloud that she had no money to pay (noting that my mother speaks good Spanish) , and was extremely rude, I heard him screaming from the Hall and took a fright to see that it was with my mother. Coarse sellers, APPALLING, that playing sports you want to buy (not to say it was all bad, one of the stores that sell only tequila business was very nice, but the prices of tequilas in General was much more expensive than in other places).

  • I wanted to pick up a few items for the folks back home so the folks at the hotel pointed me to this place. It had plenty of shops to choose from and quite a few vendors. As most of these types of pla...  more »

  • I went there twice and the 1st time was in the afternoon and lots of pressure. The 2nd time was like 9 am to 10 am low all the vendor were more relaxed and a lot less pressure.
  • I enjoyed this market more than mercado 28. We were looking for alebrijes sculptures and they asked several vendors and ended up sending us to a particular shop across the street which had the particular sculptures we were looking for. Overall a more enjoyable experience than some of the other markets.
  • Really expensive souvenirs plus non existing security, YOU SHOULD AVOID IT if possible.
  • Flea market and small shops sell you items with more than quadruple of the original price. Knock down the price they gave you, don't agree on the first price offers by salesman even if it's good price.
  • They storm you. Inflated prices on some items. God deals on other items.
