Best Shopping, Shopping Malls and Centers: Home to Coco Bongo nightclub, Hard Rock Café, Carlos 'n Charlie's and a Chili's, this oceanfront mall is always busy, especially after dark. Cambalache, a popular Argentine steakhouse, is also located inside Forum by the Sea. Haagen Dazs is close to the main entrance and is a great location for people watching. There are also numerous retail shops selling mostly swimwear, sunglasses, jewelry and souvenirs. Blue Bar, a bar and restaurant located on the third floor in a very small food court has one of the best views in all of Cancun. In the evenings there are often street performers on the main level of the mall which make for interesting photo opportunities.

Shopping Malls and Centers: "Dine on the oceanfront terrace of Hard Rock Caf� or Chili's, for a spectacular view. Or, for a similar view, without breaking the bank, pick up something in the food court and dine on the outdoor terrace just off the food court. Excellent views of the Caribbean Sea."
