Ahh, the iconic Mercado 28 in Cancun.  Everyone talks about what a MUST VISIT site it is, and honestly, there is A LOT of misinformation out there.

2016When we went, we were expecting an AUTHENTIC MEXICAN MARKET, because honestly, so many people made it sound like that’s what it was.  We were hoping for fruit stands, street food, and little nick knacks for the kids along the way.

Well, let’s get one thing straight – Mercado 28 is a TOURIST MARKET.  It sells souvenirs, t shirts, Mexican dresses and shoes and LOTS OF TEQUILA!!

After getting over the initial shock that this was not what we expected, we ended up seeing some really cool things in the market.

Check out our video to get an inside look at what you can find there:
