Cancun is not only about swimming and tanning, it’s also about shopping! Down here we give you three great options of malls you can visit during your vacations in Cancun.

Besides enjoying the sun, sand, and the gorgeous Caribbean sea, there is more to do in Cancun. On your bucket list should be at least one of the magnificent archeological sites, at least one of the marvelous ecological parks, and of course… shopping!

If you want to relax and you are a shopping lover, don’t miss the chance to visit at least one of the best malls we have in Cancun. We’ve compiled our favorite shopping centers down here:

1.-La Isla Shopping Village

This could be probably the shopping center most visited here in Cancun.  You’ll be impressed by its great design and a nice view that overlooks the Nichupte’s lagoon. Here you’ll find heaps of stores, selling shoes and clothes to the best jewelry you could find. But this is not only a place for shopping, La Isla Mall offers you plenty of activities to do. For example, if you want to spend a nice time with your family you may want to visit the Interactive Aquarium, which has a great variety of sea animals and is located inside the mall.

It also has a variety of stupendous restaurants such as La Madonna, Chili’s, Italianni’s, Johnny Rockets, and the Cambalache restaurant for meat lovers.

2.-Plaza Kukulkan

Located at Boulevard Kukulcan km 13, is the second mall we recommend you visit. Plaza Kulkulkan is all about luxury. If you’re looking for the fanciest stores, this is the mall you must visit. You can find gorgeous clothes, shoes, jewelry, and purses, among many other things. Lacoste, Burberry, Bvlgari, MontBlanc, and Envy Stores are just a few of the brands you might find in this shopping center. Another advantage of coming to this mall is that is located very close to the beach, which means there are no excuses for not visiting Plaza Kukulkan after a long day swimming.
