This is not a "pay sticker price" place. haggling is part of the art of Mercado 28. If you are looking for cheap souvenirs and don't mind walking through stalls and stalls and stalls then this is your place. I'm not good at haggling because...More

This is the largest of the local flea markets. Lots of booths filled with souvenirs, handcrafted items, regional items, clothing, silver, leather goods, local food, etc., etc. Many of the vendors accept credit cards, however, you may be better off paying with cash, pesos instead...More

If you are already in town I recommend Mercado 23 for a better shopping experience but Mercado 28 is probably your second choice. Only a few blocks away, it is brasher, larger, more pushy and filled with just about any souvenir you might want. The...More

This place is filled with "stuff" and very aggressive salespeople. It's real easy to just ignore them and walk by their booths but you do get tired of it. We lasted about 45 minutes and decided to go back to the hotel. Sure, there is...More

We took the bus from the hotel zone. Had lunch and shopped for most of the afternoon. There are tons of shops/vendors and all are willing to negotiate.

I found that prices are about the same as shops in the hotel zone, so why go just to save maybe a couple of bucks, when you can just make you day go futher by being close to your hotel

The bus picked us up on the Kukulcan Blvd. Right in front of our resort. It's $12 pesos per person. Dropped us off at the entrance of Mercado 28. Once you get off keep walking down like 5 mins and you will see the entrance...More

Ok to see, but we did not buy anything, it was much too touristy for our taste. However, people seemed nice.

We chose not to walk when the bus is only 10.5 pesos. Taxis cost too much by comparison. We only used taxis after dark.
