The beautiful destination of Cancun offers a wide selection of spectacular beaches and incredible activities, as well as very colorful, less popular spots that you will also love. We will tell you about them here; stay with us till the end and find out about everything.

Aromas, colors and flavors

Aromas, colors and flavors

When you visit Mexico you enter a world where the many flavors of its gastronomy and its colorful folklore are always present. Therefore the first place we are going to recommend is Market 23, where you can confirm what we have just said above.

This market is located in the heart of the city, only 30 minutes by car from our Cancun all inclusive resort. Here you can find everything, and I mean, everything! If you want to try a local fruit or vegetable you can find it here; you can also savor Mexican food, or shop for a variety of flowers, articles for the home, clothes, craftwork, and even piñatas.

If you want to shop for souvenirs of your trip then we recommend you go to Market 28, another picturesque location with nothing but craftwork; it is only 8 minutes by car from Market 23.

A stroll in the park

Are you on vacations on Friday or Sunday? If so, don’t miss the chance to discover the Palapas Park. Why on these days? Well, because these are the days this public park has the best atmosphere.

The small square is an open air leisure area for all the family. There are tables with benches where you can sit and enjoy some of the snacks on sale, such as golden potato chips, corn cobs, churros, sorbets or marquesitas (a typical dessert from Yucatan), kids’ games, local craftwork stalls, as well as a stage where shows can be watched.

The park is close to downtown and is located only 15 minutes by car from the hotel zone in Cancun all inclusive.

A great trip should have a wonderful souvenir photo, therefore we would like to give you some options here: Nader and Bonampak avenues; stroll along them and admire the fabulous murals on the sides of the buildings and, of course, take some great photos – click!

The two streets are near downtown, 28 minutes away by car from our Cancun all inclusive resort and only 6 minutes from each other, so it is easy to visit them on the same day.

Mariachi, tequila and trajineras

Mariachi, tequila and trajineras

Last of all, visiting Mexico is all about listening to mariachi, drinking a shot of tequila and, of course, cruising on a trajinera, a water vessel decorated with flowers that is used in Xochimilco, a popular part of Mexico City.

In Cancun you can experience this, where else? In Xoximilco, a park created for you to enjoy an authentic Mexican experience with a fair where there are Mexican snacks, traditional games, music, fruit flavored water, tequila and, of course, trajineras so you can enjoy a tour; it is located only 15 minutes from the Crown Paradise Club.
