Plaza Flamingo aka Flamingo Mall is an indoor shopping mall located in the heart of the Hotel Zone at km 11.5 on the lagoon side of Blvd. Kukulcan. It’s a pleasant place to shop as it’s air-conditioned and not very busy. There are many shops in Plaza Flamingo where you can search for the perfect souvenir to remind you of your trip to Cancun. Visit the information booth and ask about discount coupons and promotions.
If you’re looking for fine jewelry, you’ll find it at Lapis, a 3,000 square-foot jewelry store. If you’d prefer something more economical, there are silver stores where you may be able to negotiate the price of an item. And, there are many other shops that carry t-shirts, key chains, beachwear, sunglasses, etc. If you're looking for something more traditional, you can find Mexican handicrafts, handmade clothing and bracelets.
Out of money? Don’t worry, Plaza Flamingo has an ATM and a money exchange. You’ll be hungry after all that shopping; for a little taste of home, try restaurant/bars Outback Steakhouse or Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. There's also a food court if you're looking to please multiple tastes. If you’re ready for a fun night out, you won't have to go far because Pat O’Brien’s and Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville are also located in Plaza Flamingo. There is free parking if you rented a car and the mall is accessible by bus or taxi.
