Mercado 23

What would Mexico be without its colorful markets? One of the first places that existed in Cancun is called Market 23 or Mercado 23. Here, local producers offer every day from flowers to handicrafts but you can also find a lot of small restaurants to try the delicious cuisine of the peninsula.

Walking through its corridors while you are guided by your curiosity is an experience. If you visit it, we recommend you try the local fruits such as Pitahaya, which is one of the tastiest we have in this region of Mexico.


Avenida Bonampak

On the Bonampak avenue, there are big murals on old apartment buildings. Each creation addresses a theme and sends a message to who admires it. But these avenues were only the beginning of this initiative, nowadays several schools in the area have joined to these spaces of expression.

But the buildings are only part of this artistic intervention because also the bridges nearby were used as canvases to create more murals.

Plaza Bonita

If there is a place that you should visit in Cancun is Plaza Bonita. This little corner of the city is right on what was the edge of the city a long time ago. Here you can find places with crafts from various parts of Mexico as well as some of the best seafood restaurants in the city.

Between its corridors, there are coffee shops and bars so you will easily find something that invites you to stay to enjoy your visit.
