Very convenient location in the hotel zone near Coco Bongo. Most notably the Hard Rock Cafe and a few other restaurants are located here along with some shops. It was very crowded at night with people just hanging around.

Cancun is nice if you stay at your hotel and just want to go eat somewhere with local fare. The shopping is a joke and over priced. You will have to haggle your way through buying any and everything. It's overwhelming at times when you...More

Skip the stores because they all seem to be overpriced. You may notice the shops are empty... well there is a reason for that.

The shopping center is located on the "heart" of Cancún nightlife. Here is located the Hard Rock Café iconic guitar. The Coco Bongo, Carlos'n Charlies, La Vaquita, Congo, Hooters and Senõr Fogs are all on the sorroundings. Mainly for fun, few shops.

Underwhelming at best; Pushy flea market salesmen trying to sell bulk bought scrap for extortionate prices, warehouse souvenir shops lined with a multitude of the same designs, rude tour companies whistling at you for attention... The list goes on. Not much to do here in...More

If you love the hustle and bustle of the shops, the clubs, the bars and the restaurants then head over to Forum by Sea. The night life is always going from the Hard Rock, Carlos and Carlies to the shops in the Forum.
