Loved this place. The food was all excellent. But then there was all the fun stuff, like the kiddy cars, the shopping. And Mexican Street food you won’t find at chipotle! Hahahaha!

While you’re in Cancùn, you should absolutely go and visit Las Palapas. This is a place where locals outnumber tourists by far. Food is great, and a lot of activities like live concerts are held there. For people that do not want to try street...More

3 star rating- this park has both positive and negative stuff. Honestly, Marquesitas are delicious! Food is unbeatable. BUT, has a horrible location. Very sketchy.

It is a good place to crowd watching. There are tons of places to eat around. Occasionally, there are performances too, if you are lucky.

I'd suggest walking to the ADO bus terminal from Palapas and getting a cab to the restaurant. From Palapas to the bus terminal, head north on Margaritas as its only a few minutes away.
