In the heart of central Cancun, thirty minutes (more or less) past the hotel zone on the R2 bus, you will stumble across the magnificent Mercado 28. Central market, social hub, the place to be seen, the place to eat delicious and simple local food, Mercado 28 is a little bit of everything.
It's easy to loose yourself in the romantic Spanish colonial architecture. It's easy to get caught up in the sights and sounds as you watch musicians wander the narrow cobblestone paths where local artisans sell their wares in cramped haphazard stalls. Mayans in colorful woven garments quietly sell indigenous crafts, strolling past farmers proudly displaying freshly harvested produce. Mercado 28 is a special place and it's easy to get caught up in the magic of it all.
