10 years ago the place was OK. Nowadays, all the shops on the second floor are closed and the hole place looks depressing. Don't go there unless you are close to it and want to buy a small Cancún souvenir. If not, you can find...More

There are much better malls in Cancun, but if you are already walking by you will probably find an inexpensive souvenior. It's better than dealing with the hustlers just around the corner in the open air shops.

Was recommended by hotel staff for local souvenirs . Many shops but was not busy at all which meant you attracted the attention of all the shop owners wanting to sell you something . You can barter the prices.

The only saving grace is there a Starbucks. Otherwise, small shops with merchandise that can be found anywhere. I would rather shop in the grocery market next door.

When we first came to Cancun in 1987 and for years after, Plaza Caracol was a wonderful place with a lot of shops and restaurants. Iguana Wanna was one of our favorite places to eat. Unfortunately, it was severely damaged during Hurricane Wilma in October...More
