"You can get all the Gifts for your friends here" Mercado 28 Tip by zilo

Mercado 28, Cancún: 8 reviews and 7 photos

  These are what I got from the flea mkts
by zilo

There are a couple of flea markets along the hotel zone. They are all, actually, selling the same products, but with different prices. Market 28 is located outside the hotel zone (in downtown area) and the merchandises are sold @ the lowest rate.

What to buy: silver accessories, potteries, handcrafts. Personally, I like the ear rings and rings they sold there. Some of them are pretty stylish.

What to pay: I found that all the merchandises they sold in the flea market don't come with a fixed price. Those people vary the cost of a merchandise based on how they judge on how much you can spend. THEREFORE, never pay for what the price that they quoted for you!!! BARGAIN plays an interesting role in the flea market there. I have an experience that a silver necklace is marked as 800 pezels (=US$80), and I got it for 180 pezels in the final.

In the flea markets in Cancun, the best to pay is in pezels. Although they also accept US dollars, they usually charge you in a higher rate. Don't get worried if you don't have enough pezels while you are shopping in the flea markets, there are many money exchange shops around.
