This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Mercado 23, Cancun, Yucatan Peninsula

The Mercado 23, opened in downtown Cancún in 1978, is a magnet for locals doing their daily shopping and snacking. On this tour we’ll navigate through the market and its nearby food stalls, getting a sense for what makes the market tick, who shops there, and the top-notch food available. You’ll try some of the best that the market has to offer: freshly fried fish tacos; panuchos, a fried corn tortilla stuffed with beans and layered with mouth-watering toppings; pozol, a pre-hispanic beverage of corn and chocolate, and the decadent, fried pork belly called castacán.
