Mercado 28 Cancun Reviews
Super Tourist Trap disguised May 30, 2008
Mercado 28 is advertised as the place to go for bargain shopping in Cancun. I travel to Mexico very frequently and can guarantee that this is the most expensive market in Mexico.
Most places in Mexico have two prices - one for nationals and one for foreigners. If you go to this market be prepared to bargain hard for the starting at other markets.
Despite the high prices this is a very well organized market with a very good selection of silver jewelry.
Like any market in Mexico go when the market opens. Most merchants believe making the first sale of the day brings good luck for future sales. Merchants are usually willing to cut a deal with minimal hassle to make that first sale of the day. If you find a merchant unwilling to deal just walk away. You will likely find the same item in another stall with someone who is willing to deal.
