Avenida Tulum, Cancun

3.4
#7 of 26 in Shopping in Cancun
Stroll down Avenida Tulum, the central boulevard in bustling downtown Cancun. Away from the tourists you'll find shops, supermarkets and restaurants to eat authentic food alongside locals. The avenue exists in the old town, so you'll stumble across many historical sites and monuments as you wander. Follow the streets off the main strip to find some authentic Mexican markets, where you can try some haggling and grab yourself a bargain to take home. Put Avenida Tulum at the forefront of your travel plans using our Cancun travel itinerary planner.
